According to De Telegraaf, Ajax are about to strike a deal with KV Mechelen to sign forward Hassane Bandé.
The 19-year-old, who only moved to KV Mechelen in the summer, has been in excellent form this season, netting eight times in eleven Jupiler league games. Clubs such as Manchester United, FC Porto, Anderlecht, Club Brugge and Arsenal were all said to be watching the youngster, but Ajax seems to have swooped first.
According to De Telegraaf, a €9.5 million deal is set to be agreed with KV Mechelen for the Burkina Faso international, who will move to Amsterdam in the summer.
Bandé will most likely be a replacement for Amin Younes, who has made it clear that he would like to leave Ajax and will put himself in the shop window should he be included in Germany’s World Cup squad this summer.
