The Ajax has had a wide range of young talents in their books over the years.
Now their last harvest is destined to fight Juventus in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, having already seen Real Madrid thanks to an extraordinary comeback return.
The Dutch giants enjoy an excellent reputation for their production, and the tests are certainly capable of seeing with many of the larger teams in Europe that have or have had an ex-Ajax on their team.
Tottenham Hotspur managed to record four, with Jan Vertonghen, Christian Eriksen, Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez in their books.
But how would the Amsterdam team go now if it hadn't sold their best players over the years? talkSPORT.com gives a look.

Goalkeeper – Jasper Cillessen
After signing with the NEC Nijmegen, the shot-stopper was eventually a normal for the first team for three years in Amsterdam.
Gifted with skill on the ball, as well as with his hands, it was almost inevitable to walk the worn path to Barcelona in 2016.
At Camp Nou he is second choice behind Marc-Andre ter Stegen, but gets a lot of action in cup matches and remains the number 1 in the Netherlands.
Right-back – Kenny Tete
Frustrated by the lack of opportunity at the Ajax, the full back swapped the Netherlands with France when he joined Lyon in 2017.
He is fighting the former Manchester United star Rafael and Leo Dubois for the role of Bruno Genesio, but he is the number 2 of the Dutch national team at the moment, even if Hans Hateboer is pushing him hard.
Central defender – Jan Vertonghen
Vertonghen was a favorite with fans of the Ajax, and is also adored by the Spurs faithful.
& # 39; Super Jan & # 39; has been in the Premier League for seven seasons and has established himself as one of the best defenders in England.
Central defender – Toby Alderweireld
Like Vertonghen, Alderweireld proved to be a revelation for both the Ajax and the Spurs.
The Belgian duo established a solid partnership in North London after doing the same in Amsterdam.
Alderweireld, 30, arrived north of London through the Atletico Madrid and a loan to Southampton.
Left-back – Filipe Luis
You may not know it, but the Brazilian spent a season in Amsterdam playing a total amount of ZERO games for the club in 2004/05.
He took to the field only for the reserves of the club, but the ex-star of Chelsea, who had an impressive career in Spain with the Atletico Madrid, attributes to Ajax the merit of having helped develop his game.
Central midfielder – Christian Eriksen
One of the opportunities of the recent Premier League era.
The imperious director made his name at Ajax, but took his game to the next level since he arrived in north London for just £ 13 million in 2013.
The midfielder, out of contract in less than 18 months, scored 54 goals and fielded 71 assists in 230 games in all competitions.
Central midfield – Frenkie de Jong
He may not have left yet, but the Dutch starlet has already sealed 65.3 million pounds in Barcelona, while the 21-year-old has decided to leave Johan Cruijff Arena this summer.
De Jong is one of the most respected young people in the world, with Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain both expressing interest in signing it before the Catalan giants reached an agreement on the line.
The commission could go up to £ 74 million for De Jong.
Central midfielder – Wesley Sneijder
Sneijder is now in the final chapter of his career in Qatar – but what career he has had.
Five years at Ajax have been followed by Real Madrid for two years. Sneijder was also on Inter Milan and Galatasaray – winning a championship in all the mentioned clubs.
Striker – Luis Suarez
Now one of the greatest strikers in the world, he scored 111 goals in 159 appearances for Ajax before his big trip to Liverpool in 2011.
The Uruguayan was worshiped by Anfield's faithful by scoring 82 goals in 133 matches for the Premier League giants, before moving to Spain.
To date, Suarez has found the net on 145 occasions in only 190 games in all competitions for Barcelona. Not bad Luis, not bad …
Striker – Zlatan Ibrahimovic
When Ajax signed Ibrahimovic from Malmo in 2001, he couldn't have imagined what an incredible player he would have become.
Ibrahimovic, now 37 and on the LA Galaxy books, played for some of the best clubs in Europe after leaving Ajax in 2004.
He took part in spells with Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan and PSG – scoring goals galore for each of them – while winning many titles along the way.
The veteran striker had a great success with Manchester United during his brief but productive spell in the club during Jose Mourinho's tenure.
Striker – Arkadiusz Milik
The Polish striker spent only two seasons in Amsterdam, one on loan and one during his short standing period, but he certainly made his mark.
In all competitions he scored 47 goals in 75 appearances before Napoli came knocking in 2016 with a € 35 million deal.
He had serious difficulties with injuries recently, but this season Milik scored 19 goals in 38 games under Carlo Ancelotti.
