Ajax will pay Boro a fee of €12m plus €2m add-ons.

The 27-year-old has been given permission to travel to Netherlands and undergo medical on Monday (today) before putting pen to paper on a five-year contract.

Akpom was top scorer in the Sky Bet Championship last season with 28 goals.

He is yet to make an appearance for Boro this season because of injury.

    Nice move

    • TALK UR OWN 6 months ago

      COACH PASEIRO THAT DOESN’T KNOW HOW TO FIX PLAYERS IN ANOTHER ALTERNATIVE POSITION.
      HE WAS JUST KEEP INVITING IRRELEVANT PLAYERS WHEN THERE ARE BEST PLAYERS LIKE OSIGWE, BRUNO-ONYEMAECHI, EBUEHI, ONYEDIKA, ALHASSAN, ORBAN, AKPOM, BONIFACE, DESSERS AT HIS DISPOSAL

  • TALK UR OWN 6 months ago

    *** What a good move!!!***
    AKPOM IS ANOTHER PROLIFIC SUPPORTING (not main) STRIKER SUPER EAGLE NEED AT THE MOMENT.
    ** HE IS A RUGGED, TALL AND GALLANT STRIKER
    ** HE IS SPEEDY
    **HE CAN SCORE GOALS WITH BOTH LEGS
    ** HE IS HIGHLY TECHNICAL AND DEADLY IN 18-YARD BOX

  • Great Move I hope he makes it. Nice One

  • pompei 6 months ago

    How ironic it would be if Akpom shines brightly at Ajax, and in the process catches the attention of wily old Northgate!

    With the way things are shaping up now for Nigerian players in the transfer market.If I am the super Eagles’ coach my thinking will be on how to be making use of these attacking talents.

    • Unfortunately you are not Super Eagles gaffer. That guy has his own mafia squad that it would be hard to see “chop and change” in his team before AFCON in January. You will see next month’s List very soon.

  • Greenturf 6 months ago

    Nigeria will likely lose these fella to England.Peseiro will stick to his guns Onuachu,Aribo and co and with the NFF’s policy of 4 players quota for indigenous players stifling any hope of success for the super eagles going forward

  • Ignatius Abo 6 months ago

    Chuba Akpom Goal scoring Akamu. You are far better than most Super Eagles strikers. Holland will tremble with your shots. Super Eagles will be great again when you arrive.
    Heaven bless Chuba Akpom and all deserving Super Eagles strikers.

    • Glory 6 months ago

      Hahaha ha… Ooooboy. May you learn share. Yus pass pass give now. Don’t think you will like the colour of those fingers after a job well done. Chuba Akamu will be lucky to find favour in the eyes of those two bits legend. LET IT NOT BE THAT THIS IS JUST WAY TO BUY OVER NIGERIAN FANS AFTER THEIR INFAMOUS CRACKPOT BACKLASH AGAINST Bassey. Lolzzzz

    But I don’t envy the super eagles coach at the moment.. too many strikers available for selection.. how many will make it to the Afcon.

    Oshimen, moffi, awoniyi, iheancho, desser, Boniface, orban, akor, sadiq and akpom etc..

    We can only select 3 or at most 4 of them for competitive games..

    Which of these players will make the squad for the next Afcon in few months time.. I can’t remember when Last we had this number of prolific strikers all doing well for their clubs..

    • When we look at special talents. Orban and Boniface should be there with Big Boy victor Osimhen.

      Awoniyi on current form over Sadiq when Sadiq hits form then the battle is between Awoniyi and Sadiq to join the top 3…. Orban is some serious talent and Nigeria had better wise up and cap that boy soon infact immediately

      • Moffi yes but he blows hot and cold. and made a dumb move last season. Dessers is struggling in Rangers so no not on the level Iheanacho needs to reevaluate what he wants out of his career the boy is too stuck in comfort zone. Akpom should go and prove himself in Holland…..

        Musa Must be dropped. but that is wishful thinking I think it is clear he will play in SE until he is on walking stick

        • Abdul Handsy 6 months ago

          Akpom played no.10 all through last season with Boro and he affirmed that he fancy no. 10 position the most. He can play that position for super Eagles’ if Peseiro really knows what he wants.

          Guys, If I am super Eagles’ coach today, I will cap Orban tomorrow even if super eagles don’t have match that tomorrow…if you really know how to watch football you will know that the guy is a special talent.

          I can also play Boniface from 11 if I decided to with 4231 formation because that guy has speed, cuts in and love shooting in that manner with his Right Leg. But if I feel to operate 442,I will never hesitate to pair him with Osimehn up front but Osimehn a little ahead of him. He holds the ball, dribbles better than Osimehn and can also assist Osimehn in that order.

          I will stop inviting a non serious cum arrogant players like iheanacho.

          Orban can also play in the no.10 role just behind Osimehn. He can also operate from 11 as an inverted winger. He plays freekicks Better Than over-rated Simon.

          Unless Terem Moffi perform wonderfully well I will not invite him because I hate players who do not really fancy an upward movement…I will NEVER choose lowly Nice ahead of West Ham and Mareille not even when I have the opportunity to showcase myself in the champions’ leagues.

      WE ALL KNOW THAT NOT ALL THESE STRIKERS WILL MAKE IT TO AFCON. BUT WHAT WE ARE COMPLAINING ABOUT IS THAT: What is the business of inconsistent, irrelevant & bench-warmer players (like Onuachu, Aribo, Musa, Omeruo) are doing in that team. Though we appreciate them for what they have done in the past. BUT NOW, WE TALKING ABOUT PRESENT FORM.
      THERE SHOULD BE AN ALTERNATIVE POSITION FOR CONSISTENT PLAYERS.
      FOR INSTANCE:
      ** SIASIA was converted from SUPPORTING STRIKER to MIDFIELDER in 1994.
      ** YOBO was converted from STRIKER to DEFENDER. in year2000.
      ** AGHAHOWA, AIYEGBENI, OSAZE, UTAKA, NSOFOR were converted from STRIKER to WINGER and VICE-VERSA..
      ** IN CLUB LEVEL,
      ESSIEN from(4) to (2), MIKEL from (10) to (4) by MOURINHO. Also, V.MOSES from (11) to (2) by CONTE.
      AND ALL OF THEM DID CREDIBLY WELL IN THEIR NEW POSITION.
      *** IN BRIEF, A GOOD COACH SHOULD KNOW/HAVE ALTERNATIVE POSITION FOR GOOD & CONSISTENT PLAYERS IN A TEAM. NOT RELYING ON inconsistent, irrelevant & bench-warmer OLD EXPERIENCE players, claiming that they are giving advice/mentorship to young players.

  • Wether we like or not, let Ronaldo becomes a naija player. There’ll always be space for Musa. 

  • Hassan Tia 6 months ago

    The choosing of these attackers players depends on thier format in thier clubs,more scoring goals,effetiveness
    on players and the matches, unmeant of injuries, all these factors will assist recalling some of thoes attackers players I think Osimhen, Moffi, Sadiq Umar, Akpom, Boniface must be recalled cause they have these above mentioned factors unless they are affected by injuries.

    • @Hassan Tia I think you need to do yourself a favour and watch Orban play for you to even leave him out when you know the delicasy and hastened importance in capping him when togo is lurking around the corner is funny do you even comprehend the talent this boy has?… even Osimhen did not score at his rate in Belgium

  • Good move for Akpom……wooow this is the most exciting summer for Nigerian players ever…..Very fantastic and reasonable moves……
    Akor to Montepellier
    Chukwueze to Milan
    Bassey to Fulham
    Boniface to Leverkusen
    And from the wispers it might even get more exciting with more moves on the way.
    Akpom to Ajax
    Orban to Tottenham
    Awaziem to Nantes
    Onyemaechi to Porto
    Alhassan to sporting
    Something tells me that there will still be a shock transfer that will shake the whole Nigerian football environment before the window closes…. Fingers crossed
