Manchester United and Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing Kamaldeen Sulemana, as confirmed by the Ghanaian’s coach at Danish side FC Nordsjælland.
A number of clubs are said to have watched the winger play this season, as per the Daily Mail, with United sending scout Tommy Nielsen to cast an eye over the prospect.
Ajax sent their technical director, Marc Overmarrs, to Denmark to take a look at the £12m-rated attacker.
Nordsjælland coach Flemming Pedersen said that the Premier League giants are in the race for Sulemana, while Ajax is ‘the safe choice’ which was an interesting choice of words.
‘That’s a really good question.’ He told TV3 Sport when quizzed on Sulemana’s next club. ‘Ajax is perhaps the safe cjoice where he will definitely get plenty of playing time.
‘[Manchester] United, Liverpool and others are in the race. Well, I also know Kamal so well that when he is pressured, he automatically takes the next step as well.
‘And with the personality and mentality he has, there I will never ever say it will be too big a leap, for he is extraordinary.’
He also accepts that he could lose one of his better players this summer.
‘I cannot stand here and say that I expect him to be here next season because there is so much talk about him.
‘That’s completely understandable, and I myself helped hype him last spring when he made his debut. But we have to see what happens.’
