The 21-year-old had been a regular in the Ajax first team over the past two seasons but had fallen out of favour with new boss Peter Bosz. A January departure had been expected and it was Lille who have won the race to sign the Dutch international for a fee believed to be around €9 million.

El Ghazi has signed a four-year deal with Lille and spoke of his delight at joining the club to their official website.

He said, “I am very happy to be at LOSC.

“I had a very good feeling about this club ever since we started talks. I cannot wait to get started.”

Joining El Ghazi at Lille is his former Ajax teammate Ricardo Kishna, who is reportedly on his way to the club on loan from Lazio, according to Di Marzio.

The 22-year-old has barely featured for the Italian club this season and will see the season off in France as he looks to get his career back on track.
