The Celtic winger suggest that the Hoops might struggle to hold on to his club and international teammate.
Elyounoussi has only been in the door at Celtic Park for a couple of months but knows all about Ajer as his Norwegian teammate.
The winger reckons he is already playing at an English Premier League level, something he'll know all about having spent a year at Southampton.
As quoted by The Daily Record, he said: "We’ll see how long we keep Kris. He’s been here a couple of years and done extremely well. I expect to see him in a bigger club in a bigger league.
"From what I have watched of him in the past and now on a daily basis and in combat, he is more than good enough for the Premier League."
Although Elyounoussi was probably simply trying to talk up the ability of the Celtic defender.
However, some fans have taken it the wrong way, feeling that players shouldn't be touting others for moves to 'bigger clubs'.
The 25-year-old winger hasn't exactly had the best time of it in England either, so perhaps a move to a Premier League side might not even be the best thing for Ajer at this stage of his career.
Ajer's form of late hasn't exactly been stellar either and he'll be hoping to improve over the coming weeks and months.
These supporters have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the comments, with some suggesting Elyounoussi should focus on match action rather than giving quotes to reporters...
Bit silly of Elyounoussi giving an interview to Norwegian TV saying he expects Ajer to join a Bigger Club in a Bigger League like the Premier league. The same player who had to leave the Premier league to get his career back on track— Stephen Walsh (@rebelcountybhoy) October 9, 2019
He was on the same pitch as Ajer on Sunday when Ajer, Jullien and Elyounoussi were embarrassed by one of Scotland's smallest clubs— 45 Rebellion #DissolvetheUnion (@Sevcositcom) October 9, 2019
Ive no been impressed with what I’ve seen of him so far. He should keep his gub shut and do the talking on the park— gloud ritchie (@gloud) October 9, 2019

Some absolutely shocking quotes from Elyounoussi in this latest article, who the fcuk does he think he is? He's been here 5 mins & looked poor in majority of his games so far, once Johnston is back fit Mo will drop to the bench & Ajer needs dropped too for Bitton at CB. pic.twitter.com/AADyXQCgVJ— CelticForever (@CelticMemeMan) October 9, 2019
Celtic is the biggest club Elyounussi has ever played for or will ever play for. He should remember that!— Gareth Cullen (@GarethCullen30) October 10, 2019
