Report underscores Ajax's Akpom as compelling prospect for PL clubs

Posted : 09 May 2024

A report from Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf has emphasized why Chuba Akpom is an intriguing prospect for several English Premier League clubs.

Despite his celebrated move to Ajax Amsterdam less than a year ago, the Super Eagles hopeful is now linked with a departure from the four-time European champions ahead of the summer transfer window.

During the winter market, Akpom attracted concrete interest from Nottingham Forest and Fulham, but Ajax blocked his return to England.

Expressing his desire for a new career chapter next season due to limited playing opportunities at Ajax, Akpom finds himself behind Brian Brobbey in the pecking order of strikers.

The newspaper underscores Akpom's appeal to various Premier League clubs due to his British nationality, despite pledging his international future to the Super Eagles and awaiting a call-up.

With approximately thirteen years at Arsenal before turning 21, Akpom still qualifies as a homegrown player in England.

Moreover, Akpom's breakout campaign in 2022-2023 saw him score 28 goals for Middlesbrough, earning him the Championship Golden Boot, PFA Championship Player's Player of the Year, and EFL Championship Player of the Season awards.

Since joining Ajax, Akpom has tallied fifteen goals in 34 matches despite limited game time.

His previous clubs in England include Arsenal, Middlesbrough, Brentford, Coventry City, Nottingham Forest, Hull City, and Brighton & Hove.
