Dutch league leader Ajax announced Friday it has agreed to sign striker Sébastien Haller from West Ham for 22.5 million euros ($27.5 million) in a move that will bolster the Amsterdam club’s injury-hit front line.
Ajax said that the 26-year-old Ivory Coast international will sign a contract until June 30, 2025.
The transfer reunites Haller with Ajax coach Eric ten Hag, his former coach at Eredivisie team FC Utrecht, where he played for two and a half years.
Haller made 50 appearances for West Ham after his 2019 transfer from Eintracht Frankfurt. He scored 14 goals for the Hammers.
