2022 Super Eagles invitee Alhassan Yusuf not a player of interest to Sporting Lisbon

Royal Antwerp central midfielder Alhassan Yusuf is reportedly not a player of interest to Portuguese Primeira Liga giants Sporting Lisbon.


It was previously claimed that the 2022 Super Eagles invitee was a potential reinforcement for Sporting CP for the 2023-2024 season but the information has been disputed by two of the leading sports newspapers in Portugal, A Bola and Record


Sporting's priority target in this transfer window is Viktor Gyökeres and will consider delving into the transfer market for other reinforcements if a deal is struck with Coventry City for the Sweden international. 


The Green and whites are expected to be in the market for a defensive midfielder given that Uruguay star Manuel Ugarte has been linked with an imminent move to Paris Saint-Germain.


Last season, Yusuf won the double with Royal Antwerp, and started every game played by the club in the qualifying rounds of the Europa Conference League, 


Overall, the 22-year-old totaled 34 appearances in all competitions and provided two assists.  


Signed from IFK Göteborg in July 2021, the 2019 Allsvenskan Newcomer of the Year has a contract with Antwerp until June 30, 2025.
