Born in Sens, Ambrose started his career in the Academy of Auxerre and was starring for their U19’s at the age of 15, before Manchester City swooped to take him to England in 2013. He has since been a regular for Manchester City at U19 and U21 level, scoring eight times in the UEFA Youth League and 14 times in the U23 Premier League.

The 20-year-old is yet to make his first team debut in Manchester and in order to continue his development, he has been sent on loan to NAC Breda for the upcoming season. Signs in pre-season have been good with Ambrose netting six goals and he is set to start the campaign as first choice forward.

Style of Play

Ambrose is primarily a centre-forward but his dribbling ability and pace can also be utilised on the wing. He is a two-footed, skilful forward who likes to drive at defences and his finishing inside the box is deadly. Not the tallest striker, but Ambrose is decent in the air.

What to expect from Ambrose this season

Ambrose has been earning a lot of plaudits in Breda after his form during pre-season and he is expected to play a major role in NAC’s campaign. The Breda side will be aiming to avoid relegation and Ambrose is the man they hope will score the goals to keep them in the top flight. The Frenchman is highly regarded in Manchester and will be aiming to show Pep Guardiola that he is a future Premier League striker.
