The expected transfer of Cyriel Dessers to Cremonese is in danger as the club is now seeking an alternative.
According to Belgian tabloids, Cremonese are already in negotiations with Club Brugge for another Nigerian, David Okereke.
Dessers’ entourage and the Italian Calcio side have agreed a deal in principle, but it seems Genk are making excessive demands, which has now forced them to look elsewhere.
It was gathered that Dessers is also holding discussion with Danish side FC Copenhagen, and that could have also prompt Cremonese to look elsewhere.
Cremonese have now turned attention to David Okereke, who is surplus to requirement at Club Brugge.
The Nigerian striker spent last season on loan with Venezia last season, but was allowed to leave following their relegation to Serie B.
According to Alfredo Pedulla, Okereke is now close to returning to Italy and Club Brugge won’t make a fuss about a departure, but they’ll want some reasonable fee for the striker.
Club Brugge paid eight million euros for Okereke, but the Club is ready to cut its losses and allow the 24-year-old striker – who has one year left on his contract – leave.
Het Laatste Nieuws confirmed that Cremonese and Club Brugge will reach agreement sooner.
