ANDl Fuenla will strengthen its midfield in this winter market. And the main priority of the ‘kirika’ sports management is to sign the defensive midfielder Mikel Agu, 28, a native of Nigeria and who would arrive free at the azulona parish.
The midfielder does not count for his club, Vitoria de Guimaraes, with whom he would be about to terminate his contract. What’s more, he hasn’t even had a record in the first half of the season and has been training outside the team the entire course.
Fuenla’s interest in incorporating Agu was recognized this Thursday by Miguel Melgar, Fuenla’s sports director. Moreover, the manager even revealed that the negotiations for the footballer are underway. “He’s close. He’s not closed, but he’s our number one goal for midfield. He’s a player we’ve known and followed for a long time, and we’ve been trying to close the deal for months,” revealed Melgar, during the presentation of striker Mohamed Bouldini as a new azulón footballer.
Of course, the manager also assured that the operation is not simple. “He is in the First Division, in a Portuguese club where he has a very high contract. He is a player with a very good career and who has offers from both Portugal and other European teams. But we have spoken with him and he likes Spain”, referred. Therefore, the footballer, capped by Nigeria seven times, is also on the radar of other clubs. One of them is CSKA Sofia, second in the Bulgarian First Division.
