Aalborg striker Nicklas Helenius continues to generate plenty of interest. Ajax are one of several top clubs from across Europe who are interested in the 21 year old. Other interest includes Chelsea, Manchester City, Feyenoord and Wolfsburg.
Bids have been lodged with the scramble for his signature intensifying as the summer transfer window draws to a close.
Scouts continue to flock to watch Helenius in action, with an impressive strike rate in Danish football drawing plenty of admiring glances.
Aalborg are however, prepared to hold out of the best possible price, and have snubbed every approach so far.
Aalborg director Lynge Jakobsen told sporten.dk, “We have recently received several offers for Nicklas, but they haven’t been attractive enough for us so we have passed on them.”
While there are no shortage of top European clubs keen to add Helenius to their ranks, the youngster is reluctant to secure a switch to England at this point.
He said, “A move is definitely a possibility, but it has to be the right move.
“If I leave, I would prefer to move to the Netherlands or Germany.”
Ajax already have a great reputation for developing talent, so this could be good news for the team who are currently looking for another striker.
Helenius could certainly develop and play champions league football.
Ajax have have three other Danish players in the team, Christian Eriksen, Nicolai Boilesen and Lasse Schone who could influenced the player to join.
However, if he’s after a higher salary, Germany may be his preferred destination.
