According to Ignazio Genaurdi, Strasbourg have turned down a €12m bid from Wolverhampton Wanderers for striker Ludovic Ajorque (28).
Everton and Newcastle United were reportedly interested in the Reunion-born Frenchman last week, with Hertha Berlin having made a €10m offer for the forward earlier this window which was also turned down. Strasbourg value the player at €15m, and may not let him go if fellow striker Habib Diallo departs to Serie A side Salernitana.
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.
