Premier League teams seek Ajax's Chuba Akpom: Enhancing Super Eagles' opportunities?

Posted : 02 April 2024

Ajax Amsterdam forward Chuba Akpom may return to England after just one year in the Netherlands, following a successful stint with Middlesborough that attracted interest from clubs both in England and abroad.

The Anglo-Nigerian striker opted for a move to AFC Ajax over several Premier League clubs, signing a deal reportedly worth around €12 million.

Although he faced challenges initially, Akpom has showcased his talent with 12 goals in 25 appearances across Eredivisie and Europa League matches, despite starting only six games for Ajax.

Even when not in the starting lineup, Akpom has made significant contributions, notably scoring and assisting in a 2-2 draw against Sparta Rotterdam.

His recent brace against PEC Zwolle further highlights his impressive form, attracting attention from Premier League clubs seeking reinforcements for the upcoming season.

According to reports, Luton Town FC and Everton are interested in acquiring Akpom, especially considering his 'homegrown' status, making him an attractive prospect for English clubs.

While Akpom remains committed to Ajax, he acknowledges the uncertainty surrounding his future and is open to the possibility of a transfer at the end of the season.

Returning to England could bolster Akpom's chances of representing the Nigerian national team, as he aims to secure his first call-up since switching allegiance from England.

Given the recent inclusion of Nigerian players from the Premier League in the Super Eagles squad, a move back to England could reignite Akpom's international aspirations.
