You might not have heard of Kamaldeen Sulemana, but the youngster is already described as the best talent produced by Ghana since Michael Essien.
Operating as a winger, Sulemana plays for Danish side Nordsjælland and has caught the eye of not only Manchester United, but also Ajax, who have joined the race for the player. The chief of the Dutch champions, Marc Overmars, is set to watch him play against Copenhagen in the league for first-hand knowledge of the player’s abilities.
Ajax have reportedly had a bid worth £10 million for the player rejected, but are not giving up their pursuit just yet. The bid was placed during the winter transfer window, and it is understood that the Amsterdam club will try again in the summer, competing against Manchester United and Bayer Leverkusen.
Mohammed Kudus was also signed from Nordsjælland, and the young attacker has done quite well since joining Ajax. In all possibility, it seems like Sulemana could be following the same path.
Rising to prominence through the Right to Dream academy that owns Nordsjælland, Sulemana was named the Danish League’s player of the month for April. He has scored five goals in his last five appearances for the club and has also earned his international debut.
There is a very good chance that the 19-year-old’s market value could shoot up following Ghana’s World Cup qualifiers against South Africa. Sulemana is currently valued at €3 million on Transfermarkt and has three years of contract left, which makes it easier for Nordsjælland to ask for a higher fee.
