According to the Daily Mail, the 18-year-old, who plays for The Gambia’s Steve Biko, has caught the interest of multiple European clubs, including English Premier League’s Tottenham Hotspur and Nottingham Forest in addition to Olympique Marseille and Ajax Amsterdam.
The GFF’s Vice President Bakary Jammeh also mentioned that Al Ahly are among the clubs that are monitoring Bojang following his performances during the U20 AFCON.
“In addition to Tottenham, I have also heard about Al Ahly’s interest in Adama Bojang. But there is nothing official yet,” Jammeh spoke to the Egyptian TV channel “Sada El-Balad”.
“If they want to sign him, they will have to start negotiations with Steve Biko. I really hope that Bojang moves to the highest level possible, and succeeds in his next step,”
