Egyptian champions Zamalek have stepped up their pursuit of Nigeria U23 striker Junior Ajayi.
Owner of 36 Lion Liameed Gaffar, who represents Junior Ajayi, informed AfricanFootball.com Zamalek are now leading the chase for the promising striker.
“Zamalek are now the most serious club after Junior, but we will have to wait and see how things play out after the All Africa Games,” Gaffar disclosed.
Emmanuel Amuneke famously featured for Zamalek before he headed to Europe.
Gaffar and the player have already discussed with Tunisian clubs Esperance and CS Sfaxien over a transfer, but both proposals eventually hit the rocks.
“Tunisia would have been one big step towards Junior moving to Europe, but we could not eventually agree on a contract with both Esperance and Sfaxien,” he said.
