Striker Chuba Akpon is ‘back in full swing’ at Ajax after a difficult few months at the club following his move from Middlesbrough in the summer.

That’s according to Algemeen Dagblad, who cover the player and his hopes moving forwards after a tough time for the player.

They explain Akpom recently created a new record as he bagged another goal from the bench, becoming the first player for the club to score as a substitute in three straight games.

He appears to have found his feet and is now ‘running at full speed’ after failing to score in his first two months and struggling under former manager Maurice Steijn, something he admitted publically.

Many had written him off but he’s now managed four goals in 50 minutes of action and finds himself battling back and looking to repeat what he did at Middlesbrough.

A year ago, he had returned there from PAOK Saloniki and was told to train with the youngsters as the club didn’t want him and were keen on a transfer, but a need for strikers saw him bounce back and become a key player under Michael Carrick.

He eventually ended the season with 29 goals and two assists in 42 games in all competitions, leading Ajax to spend €12.3m to get him from Middlesbrough.

He’s now hoping to bounce back in the Netherlands and repeat that experience, insisting the sky is the limit as far as he’s concerned.

“This feeling reminds me of last season,” he said.

“But I also know I have not even shown fifty percent of my potential yet. I am warming up and I am sure that I can be a success for Ajax.

“Only take control of what you can control. That’s how I’ve done it my entire career. If you don’t do that, you waste time and you get distracted.

“Once the decision is made, I immediately try to find solutions. How am I going to make an impact when I get on the field?”

“I now think and know: The sky is the limit. If you score ten times, you can also score twenty times. I just have to keep going. Then the goals keep coming.”
