AS Trencin midfielder Abdul Zubairu popularly called Nigerian N’golo Kante has probably missed out on a dream move to Dutch giants Ajax Amsterdam, Owngoalnigeria.com understands.
Zubairu was linked with a move to the Dutch side after impressing for Trencin in the qualifiers of the Europa League but the move didn’t happen before the close of the summer transfer window.
Ajax were widely tipped to return with an improved offer for the recently turned 20 year old but the club have gone cold in their quest to sign him leaving AEK Athens as the favorite to snap him up.
Although AEK Athens are the front runners to sign the left footed midfielder, top teams in Belgium are also lining up moves for Zubairu who could make his senior international debut for Nigeria when they resume next year.
Plucked from GBS Academy in Jos, he is rated as one of the most technical Nigerian players by SciSkill, a website that rates the technical abilities of footballers around the world.
