According to Fabrizio Romano, Reims are trying to hijack Burnley’s move for Ajax’s Mohamed Daramy. The French Ligue 1 side have reportedly submitted a proposal worth €16m for the 21-year-old Danish winger. Reims are also willing to include a sell-on clause in the deal, which could make their offer more attractive than Burnley’s. Both clubs are continuing to negotiate with Ajax.
Mohamed Daramy joined Ajax from FC Copenhagen in the summer of 2021. The Dutch giants spent €12m on the left-winger who was 19 years old at the time of the transfer. Daramy struggled to impress in Amsterdam, which resulted in the player being loaned back to FC Copenhagen last season. In total, he featured 41 times for the Danish side, scoring nine goals and providing seven assists.
Daramy has only featured 16 times for the Ajax first team. However, with a new manager at the wheel in Maurice Steijn, there’s a possibility that the winger could receive more game time this season. A move to the Premier League to play for Burnley is set to be on the cards, along with a move to Ligue 1 to play for Reims. Mohamed Daramy has plenty of potential and could certainly excel in both leagues under Vincent Kompany or Will Still.
