Ajax director of football Marc Overmars has confirmed Ajax’s interest in Ghanaian sensation Kamaldeen, who currently plays for Danish side Nordsjaelland.

Of course, Ajax and Nordsjaelland have some familiarity after the Amsterdam giants secured a €9m deal for Mohammed Kudus last summer, who has been sensational since his arrival.

There have been various reports of an €11.5m offer for the 19-year-old Ghana international but Overmars has said that Ajax have yet to make a move thus far.

“This player [Kamaldeen] has, of course, been put down fantastically in recent months. I have had some contact with that club [Nordsjaelland],” Overmars told Voetbalzone.

“Now Ajax comes back every week as an interested party. Every club tries to put their players in the shop window.

“At the moment, we also have some wingers running ourselves. Whether we should sell first? Well? That is a statement I have heard many times before.

“We will first calmly see what is going to happen before we may take big steps.”

Kamaldeen and Kudus both came from Ghana’s Right to Dream academy before joining Nordsjaelland. The player has contributed eight goals and six assists in 24 games this season.
