Spartak Moscow offer N7.68b to sign 28-goal Nigerian striker, Eintracht Frankfurt also bidPublished: June 17, 2021
According to respected Spanish sports daily AS, Russian Premier League giants Spartak Moscow have made a bid to sign Nigerian striker Umar Sadiq but Almeria's asking price has not been met.
Spartak made a bid of sixteen million euros (approximately N7.68b) plus bonuses for the services of Sadiq who mustered 28 goals and provided nine assists in 56 matches combined for Almeria and Partizan Belgrade over the course of the 2020-2021 season.
Spartak Moscow are scouring Europe for a striker with the future of Jordan Larsson, the son of Sweden legend Henrik Larsson up in the air, and have identified Sadiq as the top target to replace the former Barcelona youth-teamer.
The second foreign club showing serious interest to sign the 2016 Olympics bronze medalist is Eintracht Frankfurt.
The German Bundesliga outfit's offer included 18 million euros (N8.64b) transfer fees plus bonuses.
Eintracht Frankfurt are looking at signing a replacement for Luka Jović who is heading back to Real Madrid following the expiration of his loan spell, while their top scorer last season André Silva is on the radar of several European teams.
The two offers from Spartak Moscow and Eintracht Frankfurt have been deemed insufficient by Almeria who value the Nigerian as from 30 million euros though he has a release clause of 60 million euros.
