Ajax are considering signing Nigerian winger Chidera Ejuke in the next transfer window, according to reports.
Director of Football at Ajax, Marc Overmars is scouring the Eredivisie in search of wingers, with Hakim Ziyech already agreeing a move to Chelsea next season and David Neres attracting huge interest from Premier League and Spanish clubs.
According to Soccer News making reference to Het Parool, Ejuke has been identified as a possible reinforcement along with Feyenoord’s Steven Berghuis.
“Because this year there is actually no player who provides more individual spectacle in the premier league than dribble king Ejuke,” the Amsterdam newspaper wrote.
“Of course, the adventurousness in the game of the 22-year-old Nigerian can at times be described by football clichés as ‘capricious’ or ‘with blinkers on’.
“But in year one at sc Heerenveen, Ejuke also often shows that he is more than an enchanting dribble artist. Just ask the Ajax defense”.
Ejuke, who has scored nine goals in the league this term, is under contract with Heerenveen until the end of the 2022-2023 season.
