Determined to punch above it’s weight in the Turkish Super Lig this season, Sivasspor FC are leaving no stone unturned to add fringed Super Eagles striker, Kayode Olanrewaju to its new recruits.
Fanatik reported that the Shakhtar Donetsk striker tops Sivasspor’s lists of wanted strikers and the club eggheads are working round the clock to meet the players’ asking price.
It would be recalled that Alanyaspor failed to retain the Nigerian after a successful loan stint following a deadlock over what the player would earn this season. Kayode had demanded for an increase in his pay, but the club failed to meet his demand, citing financial meltdown owing to the Covid-19 global impact as reasons behind its decision.
But Sivasspor are ready to cash in on the former Macabbi Netanya striker who is also wanted by Caycur Rizespor with the reds and white side making steady progress with negotiations.
The 27 years old former Luzern striker played 27 league games for Gaziantep FK, while on loan stint last season and scored 10 goals with 6 assists.
His loan deal at Shakhtar was made permanent at the end of that season after he scored two goals in six league appearances after he joined the Ukrainian side from Manchester City in 2018.
The former Austria Win forward who once represented Nigeria at youth levels (U-17, U-20 and U-23) has been capped four times by the senior side, the Super Eagles.
