Ajax may have a new pitch to potential youth players after the CIES Football Observatory released new data to show that the Dutch giants are doing things right at their academy. 

Ajax have trained the most footballers (77) who have wound up playing with any of the 31 European leagues that were included in the study. 

Partizan Belgrade are a close second (74) and Barcelona are third (57). The most represented country in the top 100 is France, with 15 clubs.
