Although the identity of the Spanish club interested in the Nigerian star is not clear, Complete Sports understands that the Nigeria Professional Football League four-time winners are also on the verge of losing striker Edmund Emmanuel to an undisclosed Belgian side.
Similarly, striker Abdullaziz Sobowale is understood to have struck a deal with Sudanese giants, Al Hilal.
The likely mid-season departures have left Pillars in aquandry and the hierarchy of the Masu Gida outfit have begun serious search for their replacements.
Their net appears to have caught Enyimba of Aba forward, Razaq Adegbite, who switched over to the two-time African champions and seven-time league winners fron Oriental Rivals, Enugu Rangers.
NPFL new entrants, Niger Tornadoes, are likely to lose their top scorer, Gata, to the Pyramid City side as the transfer market blossoms.
"We are resuming on Monday, May 30, after brief mid-season holidays," an official who does not want to be mentioned on print told Completesportsnigeria.com
"Many of our players are travelling to Europe and one has already signed for Al Hilal of Sudan so we need to find their replacements.
"Ifeanyi Matthew is going to Spain. Edmund Emmanuel is going to Belgium while Abdullaziz Sobowale has signed for Al Hilal.
"So, we've invited some players like Razaq Adegbite and Gata among others.
"After a meeting between the management and technical crew, we'll be able to determine the other players we would need because we want to strengthen the team so we can challenge for the league title again."
