Erik ten Hag has confirmed that the club is working on buying back Brian Brobbey from RB Leipzig.

After the 3-1 win over VVV-Venlo on Thursday, Erik ten Hag confirmed at his press conference that Ajax are working on a deal for Brobbey.

He is quoted by Voetbal International saying when asked about a deal for Brobbey, “I would like to. I indicated it to Marc (Overmars), Who is also working on it.”

The 19-year-old decided to sign a four-year deal with RB Leipzig in March, but the striker is said to be doubting the move now that Julian Nagelsmann has chosen to depart for Bayern Munich.

The question is whether RB Leipzig are open to selling Brobbey before he has even turned up at the club. Ten Hag added, “I don’t know if it is possible. I have talks with him about that, but he just signed there. He’s not even there yet and I don’t know if Leipzig is open to that. He hasn’t been that outspoken to me yet.”
