Top Turkish Bursaspor have indicated their intent to secure Vikings Nigerian striker Samuel Adegbenro and are willing to spend 14 million on the table for his services.
Top Swedish soccer publication Aftenblad claim that Viking has received a bid of NOK 14 million for the Nigerian.
“ I can confirm that Viking has received a bid that is at the level we need to assess a sale.”
“Now we will take some time to evaluate the bid,” explains club director Eirik W. Henningsen to the newspaper.
The publication however suggest that the player himself might not favor a move to over Turkish football.
“For us, this is not about which club can pay the highest salary, but that Samuel Adegbenro is taking the right step in his career.”
It is not given that that step is for Turkey, says Adegbenro’s agent, Atta Aneke.
Swedish club Malmö, with Norwegian Jo Inge Berge and Magnus Wolff Eikrem in the squad, are also thought to be interested in the pointmans services, and the league leader in Sweden will be a far more attractive alternative than Bursaspor for Adegbenro.
Adegbenro has scored six goals for the Viking this season.
