Badji joined French side Amiens last summer on a one year loan deal with Al Ahly. The club had the option to make the contract permanent for a $1.8 million fee.
Badji, 24, impressed in his debut season in Ligue 2 with Amiens scoring 13 goals and providing three assists over 26 games.
Amiens was able to sign Badji last month on a permanent contract and extend his stay for an additional year.
Badji may be leaving Amiens, with Ligue 1 team Auxerre being considered as potential suitors for the Senegalese.
A report from L’Equipe states that Badji’s services could be acquired by Auxerre for a sum in the region EUR4 million.
According to the report, Badji decided to join Auxerre. He even staged a strike at Amiens in an attempt to force a move.
Badji, who had been a good performer under Rene Weiler’s former head coach, joined Al Ahly in January 2020 from Austria’s Rapid Vienna.
Badji was replaced by Pitso Mosimane, South African manager, months later.
