Chuba Akpom: Ajax striker becomes most prolific goalscorer in Eredivisie



By: Monsurah Olatunji

Ajax Amsterdam striker Chuba Akpom has been recognised for his outstanding performance in the Eredivisie.
The Nigeria striker has emerged as the most prolific goalscorer in the Dutch top flight this season.
Akpom took his career tally to 89 goals in all competitions with his brace in a 3-1 win at PEC Zwolle on Sunday, March 31.
The Hale End Academy graduate has been in scintillating form for Ajax, averaging a goal every 76 minutes of play in the Eredivisie.
Despite his rare start in the league for the Amsterdam club due to the injury-enforced absence, the 28-year-old goal-scoring prowess extends beyond the Eredivisie, with a total of 13 goals in 30 matches across all competitions this season.
According to Ajax Fanatics, several unnamed Premier League clubs are keen on taking Akpom back to England ahead of next season.
However, the Super Eagles hopeful maintains that he wants to stay at Ajax.
Honestly, I have no idea,” Akpom told ESPN, as per AF, when asked where his next possible destination is.
“We’ll probably look into that at the end of the season. Right now, we need to focus on getting three points from every game we play.
“Honestly, I don’t know much about what’s happening behind closed doors. I talk to my agent, but I don’t know what the club thinks.
‘I made it clear that I wanted to stay here (during the winter window) because I believed I could have a big impact. So, I really wanted to stay.
“Of course, I want to stay. I play for Ajax. I know it hasn’t been a good season for us, but I enjoy it here. Besides, we can only do better next season. I’m definitely happy to be here.”
