Okereke Set For Besiktas Switch

Turkish Super League Lig giants, Besiktas have intensified their effort to sign David Okereke from Cremonese.

Okereke is looking to leave Cremonese this summer following the club’s relegation from Serie A last season.

A number of clubs in Italy have expressed interest in the striker but he is now set for a move to Turkey.

According reports emanating from Turkey, Besiktas are in advanced negotiations with Cremonese for the striker.

The 25-year-old only linked up with Cremonese from Belgian Pro League outfit, KRC Genk last summer.

Okereke scored seven goals in 29 league appearances for the Tigers last season.

The Nigerian has spent almost his entire professional career in Italy.

He has had different stints with Italian clubs, Spezia, Cosenza and Venezia.

    @UGO IWUNZE won’t you PUSH for this one to be INVITED to the SUPER EAGLES? LMFAO.or do you want AHMED MUSA to continue to WASTE their SLOT? LMFAO..

    • MONKEY POST so what do you really want for Ahmed Musa to play until he is 200 years old?.. Guy grow up mehn the sooner you understand that Musa is a spent force the better for you.

      To answer your question I am disappointed in Okereke’s choice of Besiktas, I would have liked him to show more ambition and stay in Italy but then again Bekistas is playing in Europe so that may have been his motivation and yes as of present form he should in an honest country of doing things be way above Ahmed Musa in the National team pecking order. Why he is playing week in week out for his club and doing very well and if not for the loaded talent Super Eagles is currently blessed with, he should be in the team, for example if he is from Benin or Togo he would be one of the first names on their list. this is just to show you how far below the pecking Order Musa should be currently in the national team well, in an honest country that is.

      How many games has Ahmed Musa played for club and country since the start of 2022 to date go and check it out .

        No am just REMINDING you cos u av always BLAMED MUSA 4 every PLAYER WOES of not getting an INVITE to the NATIONAL TEAM.

        The likes of DENNIS, DESSERS, ONUACHU etc even when most of them BARELY PLAY the same WING with MUSA..

        I remember when they didn’t INVITE AKPOGUMA and a certain GOAL KEEPER like that you still PINNED it on MUSA.

        That MUSA was OCCUPYING their SLOT…


        And I was like WTF!!!


        • No I posted a post before the wotowoto derby lol or Jollof if you like with Ghana. Back then CSN still allowed us to share links

          A profit a well reknowned man of God of proclaimed that Nigeria will not qualify for World Cup if Ahmed Musa is in the team as Captain and our team will go from bad to worst. did you all listen CAPITAL NO!!!.

          You good doesn’t come with Injustice when there is an Aura of Injustice and criminality in something Karma will not allow anything good to come about it. Why should God Bless something or rather a “cause” that is founded on Criminal injustice?.

          i will leave the rest to your imagination. while you imagine look at the trajectory and State of Nigerian ball as a whole since that Wotowoto Derby.

          enjoy the rest of your day bro!

        • @MONKEY POST Away goals Ko Away goals Ni. at the end of the day, When they look back at WC history in 2022 which Africa team Knocked out Nigeria to play WC, And which African Teams was at WC?. Ghana was. Was Nigeria there?.. Guy forget story jare!. In my Books we chop wotowoto at the hands of Ghana PERIODT. ‘

          Again if you realise we miss out on Away Goals Why hate Eguavoen so much?. Mr contradiction.like I said Lady luck was NOT on our side as the Prophet said and you know what If MUSA was not there as cheerleader I bet you bros Luck would have been on our side. Onyeka would not have been Injured. Osimhen Shot would have not been offside or something would have gone our way but if you look at it everything did not go our way that day bro. in such a tight game. also first leg Iheancho penalty call may have been given. WHEN A PROFIT TALK YOU PEOPLE SHOULD LISTEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Why should God And Lady Luck and every other aspect of Good faith help Nigerian Football When Nigerian Ball does not want to help themselves. . Did you read what I wrote. Good Omen does not follow bad. When the Nigerian Government does the needful and stripps Musa of That Captaincy and does not allow him near the team again because of his Tribe and most importantly criminally trying to make him attain more caps than greater SE Captains than him from the past. When NFF and Mumu fulani dictors hands the Captaincy to the Most inform player in the team or most Experienced inform player/Leader. And selection Criteria is Purely on current form and merit. If Nigeria does not beat most Teams in World Football talkless of Africa call me a liar.

    • *Fulani Dictators*
