ALMERIA REJECT BIDS FOR NIGERIA STRIKER
Nigeria striker Umar Sadiq has reportedly had two bids rejected for him by his Spanish second tier team Almeria. The news of the interest in the Nigeria player was reported by Spanish newspaper AS.
Two European teams made a bid for Sadiq and it was turned down by Almeria who want half of the €60m release clause in his current contract with the Segundaclub. Almeria are ready to sell the Nigeria striker if they receive at least €30m for him. German Bundesliga club Eintracht Frankfurt and Russia Premier League outfit Spartak Moscow are the two teams interested in signing the player and it remains to be seen whether the interested clubs will match the asking price demanded by Almeria for their player.
Jordan Larsson and Andre Silva have both been linked with potential exits from Spartak Moscow and Eintracht Frankfurt respectively and Nigeria striker Sadiq could be a good replacement for either of the two players this summer dependent on who wins his signature.
Spartak Moscow striker Jordan Larsson has been linked with a move to the Premier League with London team West Ham United. Jordan's father, Henrik Larsson is very familiar with West Ham United having played for Manchester United. Jordan is presently with the Sweden squad at the ongoing Euro 2020 tournament and he could feature when Sweden take on Ukraine in a round of 16 clash at the tournament.
Portugal attacker Andre Silva was one of the hottest strikers in Europe last season and he has been linked with several teams this summer. Sadiq could replace Silva if he leaves Frankfurt. Silva was the second highest goalscorer in the German Bundesliga last season after netting 28 times for his team. He was only second to Bayern Munich goalscoring machine Robert Lewandowski who finished last term with 41 league outings.
