Akpom cites Bergkamp as inspiration, feels similarity

Posted : 19 September 2023
Nigerian forward Chuba Akpom, who recently transferred from Middlesbrough to Ajax for €14 million, has expressed his respect for Arsenal legend Denis Bergkamp, noting their similar playing styles. 

Akpom had a standout season last year, scoring 29 goals in 41 games for Middlesbrough, which led to his move to the Dutch club. 

His best performances often came when playing as a second striker, a role that Bergkamp also excelled in. 

Speaking to Ajax TV, Akpom praised Bergkamp's abilities as a "false nine" and emphasized that he draws inspiration from such players. 

Although his full debut for Ajax in a 3-1 loss to Twente wasn't eye-catching, Akpom aims to find his form soon.
