Nigeria goalkeeper Maduka Okoye says top clubs in England, Italy and Belgium are interested in signing him from Dutch outfit Sparta Rotterdam, reports Completesports.com.
Okoye only joined Sparta Rotterdam last summer after ending his stay with German club Fortuna Dusseldorf.
“Big clubs from England are also interested and a big club from both Italy and Belgium”, he told Transfermarkt.
“They have both already been in contact with my agent, but until the summer I will be fully focused on playing. There is work to be done here and there are goals to be achieved.”
The 21-year-old also hinted that it was possible for any of the suitors to loan him back to his current club.

“I think it would be good for a big club if they bought me and then loan met to Sparta for another one or two years,” Okoye said.
“That way Sparta earn some money and I can keep playing myself so that I get even better. When my new club are ready to give me the position below the bar, I can go that way. Similar to how Chelsea have done that in the past.”
The young goalkeeper also confirmed Ajax have already contacted Sparta about him.
“Ajax have contacted Sparta, but not with me or my agent”, he said.
“I have a very good relationship with technical director Henk van Stee and trainer Henk Fraser. I am sure that if it were to become concrete, I will be the first to hear it.”Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
