German Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig attacker Brian Brobbey is on the verge of rejoining Ajax’s training camp at the beginning of January.
The only condition in the lease that is yet to be negotiated is the option to buy, which can probably turn out to be very high.
At least that’s what Ajax watcher Freek Jansen thinks as published in the Voetbal International podcast.
Although the German club took over the young promising striker from Ajax last summer on a free transfer, it is not prepared to let Brian Brobbey go so cheaply.
The team from Amsterdam would like a purchase option in the contract, so a high transfer fee seems the most logical solution.
“They are going to rent it and a possible option to buy is still being negotiated,” says the journalist about the current situation. “That is not a pure necessity from Ajax. And I can imagine that Leipzig has something like this: an option is fine, but then we will put a huge amount in it. So that they feel a bit assured, should Brobbey score many goals in the coming period.” make it,” he explains.
According to Jansen, that is also a great deal from Ajax’s perspective, because Brobbey is actually the successor to himself. Danilo may have filled the role of second striker, but was not a serious competitor for Sébastien Haller.
That must be the already medically approved Brobbey. “In principle, he will then join, on January 3 it is expected that he will be on the plane to the training camp in Portugal,” said Jansen.
