Ajax Keen On Arsenal’s Ajayi

Ajax Amsterdam are willing to give Semi Ajayi a contract when his deal at English Premier League side Arsenal runs out in the summer, AfricanFootball.com understands.

The highly-promising central defender has already trained with the Ajax main squad and they like what they have seen and so the need to give him a deal in the summer, when his time in Arsenal will be up.

“Ajayi has been training with Ajax main team. They like him and they are willing to give him a contract when his deal at Arsenal runs out in the summer,” a top source informed AfricanFootball.com

He is a technically sound defender, who is tall and very good aerially. He was also on the books of Charlton Atheltic Academy and joined Arsenal two years ago from there..

The 21-year-old Ajayi has already been capped at U20 level by Nigeria when he featured at the 2013 Toulon Festival in France for the Flying Eagles.

He has also sat out a couple of Arsenal games and lately there were suggestions he could go on loan from the Emirates so as to gain some more first-team experience.
