Liverpool, Man United battling to sign Ghanaian winger Sulemana – Nordsjaelland boss confirms


Manchester United and Liverpool are ‘in the race’ to sign Nordsjælland winger Kamaldeen Sulemana according to his head coach Flemming Pedersen.

Sulemana has been in fine form this season, netting 10 goals while providing seven assists for Nordsjælland. The Ghanian winger has attracted interests from a number of clubs in Europe with Ajax believed to have made a £12million offer.

The 19-year-old is also being monitored by Premier League clubs including Liverpool and United according to Pedersen.

“That’s a really good question. Ajax is perhaps the safe choice where he will definitely get plenty of playing time,” he told TV3 Sport when asked where Sulemana is most likely to end up next.

“[Manchester] United, Liverpool, and others are in the race. Well, I also know Kamal so well that when he is pressured, he automatically takes the next step as well. And with the personality and mentality he has, there I will never ever say it will be too big a leap, for he is extraordinary,” he added.

When asked if he expects the teenager to leave this summer he responded, “You could well assume that.”

“I cannot stand here to say that I expect him to be here next season because there is so much talk about him. ‘That’s completely understandable, and I myself helped hype him last spring when he made his debut. But we have to see what happens.”

Sulemana has already won two caps for Ghana at the full international level.
