The 28-year-old, who started his career at Ajax, has made giant strides since moving to AZ from Willem II and has established himself as a firm fixture in Marco van Basten's Oranje squad.
Koeman has been an admirer of the classy midfielder for some time and feels the player would relish a return to Ajax, but admits AZ's demands may prove beyond him.
"He is a good player, who also would love to play for Ajax," Koeman told AD Sportwereld.
"His price at Willem II, when we were interested, was about é¼9 million and that was too high.
"And I have no idea what it will be now."
Koeman, meanwhile, was pleased with the 4-1 win over RBC Roosendaal on Sunday and believes Ajax are ready to make a sustained title charge.
A poor start to the season has handed PSV Eindhoven a sizeable cushion, but he feels his players are ready to hit top form.
"We have made changes and things have improved," he said. "But we can be even better still."
