African Giants Al Ahly Suffer Blow In Pursuit Of Blessing ElekePublished: December 12, 2019
FC Luzern striker Blessing Eleke is being linked with a transfer to African powerhouse Al Alhy in the January transfer window, according to reports emanating from the Egyptian media.
Al Ahly are now being managed by former Switzerland international defender René Weiler, who coached Eleke at Luzern during the 2018-2019 season.
The eight-time African champions are in the market for a striker, with Junior Ajayi, Walid Azaro, Marwan Mohsen, and Salah Mohsen failing to convince Weiler this season, accounting for only 7 of the 25 goals scored by Al Ahly.
Allnigeriasoccer.com has been doing some digging and it can be revealed that Al Ahly have yet to make contact with Eleke about joining the club next month.
And even if the Reds eventually firm up their interest with an official bid to Luzern, they are unlikely to get the green light from Eleke as moving to an African club at this stage of his career is not one of his targets.
Previously, the 23-year-old turned out for Gorica, Olimpija Ljubljana and Ashdod before sealing a move to Luzern in July 2018.
He has scored 20 goals in 60 games since moving to Switzerland and has Europa League qualifying games under his belt.
