Erik ten Hag wants Ajax goalscorer in January with talks ongoing
Manchester United have been linked with a move for Ajax striker Brian Brobbey again this month.
The first links surfaced when Erik ten Hag became United manager after moving from Amsterdam. He has since signed two players he worked with at Ajax and Brobbey could be next.
According to German football reporter Florian Plettenberg, Ten Hag would like to add Brobbey to his squad this summer. It is understood that United have been in contract with the player since last summer.

It won’t be a straightforward process since Ajax are reluctant to sell their striker midway through the season. They will want him to stay for the remainder of the season.
Brobbey has enjoyed a rich vein of form this term, having scored 13 goals in 25 appearances across all competitions.
Of course, the Dutch forward isn’t the only striker option being linked with a switch to Old Trafford. We’ve ran reports on Karim Benzema, Vinicius Jr, Benjamin Sesko and Joshua Zirkzee.
