Bojan, 22, has spent the last two seasons on loan to Italian sides after struggling for a first team place at Barcelona.

BARCELONA, Spain (AP) -- Barcelona has agreed to loan striker Bojan Krkic to Dutch champion Ajax for the upcoming season with an option for another one.

The 22-year-old Krkic played the past two seasons on loan in Italy, first with AC Roma and then AC Milan.

Ajax has won the Dutch league for the past three seasons and is coached by former Barcelona player Frank de Boer.

Krkic came up through Barcelona's youth program and played for its first team from 2007-2011.
