Barcelona decided to send Ramon Plans to watch two transfer targers in action on Saturday and he had a lot to report as Holland beat Germany 3-0.

Ajax duo De Ligt and De Jong both played well for Ronald Koeman's side. At 21, Frenkie De Jong controlled the midfield and showed the virtues that make Barca want to sign him.

Some good one or two-touch play, moments of quality, losing the ball infrequently, and a love of receiving it as much as possible. These are the characteristics that make him so desired. 

He also did well at stopping Germany when they came forward and started good counter-attacks. In this performance he seemed more like Arthur than Busquets.


De Ligt also showed his qualities alongside Virgil van Dijk. Quick to cut out the danger, hard to beat one-on-one and strong in the air. At 19 he is one of the future best centre-backs in the world and showed it in this Nations League match.
