‘Feeling that Ajax will not bet on Ekkelenkamp’


Arnold Bruggink does not think that Jurgen Ekkelenkamp will get a base place at Ajax in the coming season. The analyst discusses in the YouTube program Football time a possible rental transfer to FC Twente.

Ekkelenkamp does get his chances from trainer Erik ten Hag in the preparation of Ajax, but Bruggink thinks that the attacking midfielder will not have a basic place when the season really starts. ‘I saw him play against RKC on Saturday and then he played really well. But emotionally I have the feeling that Ajax is not going to bet on that ‘, says Bruggink.

The former FC Twente player thinks that Ajax will also enter the transfer market if Donny van de Beek – a competitor of Ekkelenkamp – leaves. ‘If Van de Beek were to leave, you still have the strong impression that Ajax is going to get new players for that. But that is only the moment that FC Twente can jump in and then you might be talking about the end of September. FC Twente just has to wait a long time. ‘

René Wagelaar, former FC Twente youth player and now agent, believes that FC Twente should do everything to attract Ekkelenkamp. ‘That would fit and if that wouldn’t fit, they should put Lamprou there. In my opinion he will not play ten matches at Ajax. ‘
