Metz considering the return of Georges Mikautadze from Ajax

According to Momahed Toubache-TerFC Metz are considering trying to resign Georges Mikautadze (23) from Ajax. The Georgian attacker made the switch from Metz to Amsterdam in the summer transfer window for a fee of €16m, with the forward’s departure video sat in the drafts of the club for all window, according to L’Équipe.

Mikautadze is not seen as an idealistic fit for the football that they hope to play at the Johan Cruyff Arena, and Ajax would like to sell the Georgian, Mohamed Toubache-Ter reports. The Eredivisie strugglers are hoping to generate interest from several Ligue 1 clubs, but the newly promoted side are strongly considering the return of the 23-year-old.

The Lyon academy graduate has struggled to make an impact in the Netherlands only making 4 appearances in the Eredivisie to date with Ajax finding themselves at the bottom of the table in the Dutch top flight. The Dutch giants are unlikely to let Mikautadze leave cheaply following their big outlay on the attacker in the summer which could make any move for Metz difficult.
