Super Eagles-eligible defender joins Birmingham City for a fee of N2.9b, subject to medicalPublished: August 28, 2023
Birmingham City have reached an agreement with Cremonese for the signing of Super Eagles-eligible defender Emanuel Aiwu.
According to transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano, the Championship side have agreed to pay their Serie B counterparts 3 million pounds (approximately N2.9b in Nigerian currency) for the services of the centre-back.
Romano is sure an agreement is in place as he added that Aiwu is to undergo a medical on Tuesday, August 29.
Aiwu joined Cremonese last summer on a four-year deal but is on the verge of leaving the club just a year after joining.
It is believed that there is a clause in his contract that allows him to leave the Italian outfit if they got relegated and that appears to be the premise that he is leaving the club.
He featured in 27 matches in all competitions for the Grigiorossi last season, 23 of which were in the Serie A.
The 22-year-old has not been short of suitors despite getting relegated with Cremonese to the Serie B last season.
The Austrian-born centre-back has been linked with Turkish Super Lig side Besiktas and Premier League newcomers Burnley but appears to be heading to Birmingham City.
