Ajax has reached an agreement with São Paulo for the transfer of Antony, the 19-year-old striker considered one of the country’s biggest prospects. He will become the most expensive rookie in club history.
It’s already official that Hakim Ziyech will pack his bags at the end of the season and will leave Amsterdam for London, since he will play in the Premier League, on the Chelsea side, during the 2020/2021 season. The Blues will spend an amount of around 45 million euros to afford the Moroccan international. A big loss for the Eredivisie team since this season again, Ziyech was evolving to a hell of a level, with 6 goals and 12 assists in 18 league games.
But on the Amsterdam side, we are rarely caught off guard. And according to the Dutch press and the serious De Telegraaf media, the replacement for the future Blue has already been found! It is Antony, the little prodigy from São Paulo, who had caught the eye of many clubs in the Other Continent, like Olympique Lyonnais and AS Monaco. Marc Overmars would thus have won the battle against his various competitors.
