Al Ahly forward Junior Ajayi is on the radar of Lisbon giants Sporting CP following a strong season in the Egyptian Premier League.
According to Nigerian press statements، sources close to Junior Ajayi uncovered that the Portuguese Sporting Lisbon entered into negotiations to sign Al-Ahly player in the coming season.
Sporting are expected to be very busy in the transfer market this summer، following an attack on their players by a section of their own fanbase at the club’s training ground which has led to a lot of the squad wanting to leave immediately.
The 22 year old Nigerian has been a revelation for Al Ahly since joining from Tunisian side Sfaxien in the summer of 2016، scoring 21 and assisting 18 in 71 appearances for the club and winning two Egyptian Premier League titles in the process.
In the meantime، Ajayi will focus on the CAF Champions League group stage with Al Ahly، where their next game is against Botswana’s surprise package Township Rollers on July 17th، following the World Cup.
