Everton considering move for Strasbourg forward Ludovic Ajorque

According to Ignazio Genuardi Premier League side Everton are considering a move for Strasbourg forward Ludovic Ajorque (28) – with Newcastle United also interested in the Reunion-born Frenchman.

Hertha Berlin were interested in the player earlier on in the transfer window and made a €10m offer, yet Strasbourg wanted €15m for the player – who has two years left on his current contract.

Lille were also chasing the striker, but he refused a move to Northern France as the club then opted to sign Mohamed Bayo from Clermont.

Last season the Frenchman scored 12 goals in 36 games in Ligue 1 after arriving in Eastern France in 2018. The former Clermont and Angers man has a total of 122 appearances in France’s top tier, with 45 goals and 17 assists.  He was also part of Strasbourg’s Coupe de la Ligue win in 2018/19 where he made 10 appearances and scored three goals on the road to the final. He also has experience in Europa League qualifying matches with 6 appearances and two goals in the competition.

The Frenchman, who is eligible to play Madagascar, last extended his contract with Strasbourg in 2020, which currently runs up to 2024.
