Cape Town - Ajax forward Kasper Dolberg says talk of a move to the English Premier League is premature as his meteoric rise continues.

As his first season at the Amsterdam Arena draws closer to an end, the teenager has already sparked widespread interest in his services from Europe's elite.

Already there have been comparisons made with Zlatan Ibrahimovic due to his height and technical ability on the ball and ironically, being discovered by the same Ajax scout.

The Denmark international's 14 league goals has also cemented his position in Peter Bosz starting XI at the age of 19, and he wants to continue his development with the Eredivisie giants.

"It's too big a step to go to City or United now," Dolberg told FourFourTwo. "It's important to keep on playing, as I don't know what could happen in the future.

"My goal [this season] was to play for Ajax's reserve team, become their best player and maybe get a few matches in the first team. But then Arek Milik went to Napoli and I got the chance."

Meanwhile another young talent, Justin Kluivert, 17, is turning heads in the Ajax red and white and some say he's even more skillful than the father, who went on to enjoy a top level career with AC Milan and Barcelona and who is now sports director at Paris Saint-Germain.
