Davy Propper has been an important player for Brighton & Hove Albion this season.
The Dutchman has 25 starts in the Premier League and played the full match as his side beat Millwall at the weekend to get through to the FA Cup semi-finals.
Speaking to De Telegraaf about the cup progress, Propper is quoted as saying: “A disadvantage is that we now have to take on Manchester City, but it’s fun for our fans. They go to Wembley with 40,000 supporters.”
The big day out at Wembley will be something Brighton players and fans will be very much looking forward to, even if they know they face a hard task to brush aside Pep Guardiola’s team.
After speaking about the FA Cup, De Telegraaf then asked Propper how he’d feel if Ajax made an attempt to sign him. It’s not clear exactly why the question was asked, and it could be just be to prove that that the Eredivisie club are now capable of signing Premier League players, following the transfers of Dusan Tadic and Daley Blind.
The Brighton midfielder replied: “That is not the case now (that they’re trying to sign him), but talking is always possible. In the past at Vitesse there has sometimes been contact. But nothing is going on now, so I don’t have to say anything else about that.”
De Telegraaf don’t then go on to mention anything else about possible Ajax interest, so it’s a bit of a strange one.
