Marvelous Nakamba’s absence from the Warriors’ 2019 Afcon Group A match against the Cranes of Uganda at the Cairo International Stadium last night is said to have given a hard time to scouts. Reports suggest that scouts from several European clubs, including, Fiorentina, Atalanta, Torino and Sampdoria from the Italian Serie A are tracking Zimbabwe’s defensive midfielder.
Aston Villa of England is reported to have tabled a £20 million bid for Nakamba. The development is believed to have made other clubs eager to assess Nkamba. Villa remain in pole position to complete the signing of the Zimbabwean midfielder.
Nakamba’s current club is however believed to be holding out on any deal until after the Afcon finals show where they expect their player to shine. This would increase his transfer fee.
Nakamba’s fine show when Zimbabwe played Egypt in an AFCON opener also provoked interest in the player from a number of other clubs that had been waiting on the wings. He was however sidelined last night due to an injury.
Journalist Kristof Terreur, the English Premiership correspondent for Belgian Dutch language newspaper, Het Laaste Nieuws, posted via microblogging site, twitter and said:
Several clubs have inquired about Marvelous Nakamba, defensive midfielder of Club Brugge. His club are willing to sell him at the right price but are hoping that Nakamba’s fee could rise if he plays a good Afcon.
Agents have offered him to Aston Villa.
