Valencia, Sevilla, Bologna interested in Real Sociedad's Super Eagles striker Sadiq 

Umar Sadiq is being linked with a departure from La Liga club Real Sociedad in the summer transfer window.

According to Spanish sports daily AS, Valencia have identified the Nigeria national teamer as a potential target in the event that they fail to land their top candidate Rafa Mir from Sevilla. 

Valencia are working on a deal that would see Sadiq join the club on a season-long loan. 

Los Ches are confident the deal for the lanky Nigerian center forward will go through as their director of football Miguel Ángel Corona has a good relationship with Roberto Olabe, the sporting director of Real Sociedad .

Valencia face competition for the services of Sadiq, with Sevilla and Italian outfit Bologna also showing interest in the 2016 Olympics bronze medalist. 

The Kusa Boys product struggled to break into Real Sociedad's starting lineup last season after recovering from a career threatening injury shortly after his arrival at The White and Blues from Almeria. 

Sadiq started fifteen matches from a possible fifty-three in all competitions during the 2023-2024 campaign, while logging 
1,384 minutes.

The forward has worn the colours of Partizan Belgrade, Rangers, AS Roma, Spezia, Perugia, NAC Breda, Torino and USD Lavagnese in the past.

He scored on his full debut when Nigeria defeated Guinea-Bissau 2-0 at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations and was initially named in the squad for the 2023 AFCON, but was replaced at the last minute due to fitness issues.
