According to L’Équipe Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin are targeting Strasbourg centre-forward Ludovic Ajorque (28). The Berlin-based side join Wolfsburg and Frankfurt in the chase for the Reunion born Frenchman – who could leave for up to €15m. The player is currently under contract at Strasbourg until June 2024.
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. Ajorque could thus leave for up to €15m, as it is becoming increasingly likely he will play in Germany next season.
