'No bid' - Fabrizio Romano pours cold water on rumours linking Super Eagle to DortmundPublished: August 04, 2022
Italian transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano has poured cold water on viral reports in the local and foreign media linking Nigeria international Umar Sadiq with an imminent move to Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund.
It is correct that Dortmund are in the market for a centre-forward as a replacement for Sebastien Haller, who will be out of action for several months due to testicular tumor.
However, The Black and Yellows have not held any talks whatsoever with the leadership of Almeria over the signing of Sadiq.
There’s no €25m bid for Umar Sadiq from Borussia Dortmund, despite last rumours. Villarreal are the favourites in the race to sign Sadiq as priority. 🚨🇳🇬 #transfers— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) August 4, 2022

Romano claims that Villarreal are the frontrunners for the Football College Abuja product should he move on from Almeria before the close of the summer transfer window.
Sadiq has enjoyed a productive spell since his arrival at Almeria from Partizan Belgrade in October 2020, with a goal involvement of 60 (41 goals, 19 assists) in 81 all-competition appearances.
On the international stage, the 2016 Olympics bronze medalist was a member of the Super Eagles squad to the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon, where he scored his first senior goal in a group stage win vs Guinea Bissau.
The 25-year-old Sadiq has three years left on his contract with the Rojiblancos.
