Trabzonspor Step Up Bid To Sign Omeruo From Leganes

Trabzonspor Step Up Bid To Sign Omeruo From Leganes

Turkish Super Lig outfit Trabzonspor are intensifying efforts to sign Kenneth Omeruo from Leganes this summer, reports Completesports.com.

Omeruo is expected to leave Leganes following the Cucumber Growers relegation to the Segunda Division last season.

Leganes paid Chelsea €5m to sign the centre-back on a permanent deal last summer.

The Nigeria international made 23 league appearances for Leganes last season and scored once.

Omeruo was cleared to commence training at Deportiva Burtaque on Thursday following a massive Covid-19 test conducted by Leganes doctors on Tuesday.

The versatile defender once spent time on loan at Turkish clubs, Kasimpasa and Alanyaspor.

  • He is going to familiar terrain. He needs to step up his game to enhance his SE status  or regular playing time 

  • Kenneth Omeruo is confirmed La Liga class and does not need to jump at any club in Turkey. It’s too deep a drop in league quality. To go from one of the top two leagues in the world where he performed with credit, to outside of the top ten leagues is folly and should only be contemplated if there are no other options. It will be better for him, his club and his national career if he stays in Spain and goes to another La Liga club. Either on loan for 12 months with the option to buy or permanently.

    There is talk also of interest from Levante and he could also wait to see which of the clubs gain promotion from La Liga 2 and joins Cadiz and Huesca in the premier division. He should tell Trabzonspor to wait until all the promotion decisions are made and see all offers before deciding.

    At this time, playing in La Liga 2 should not be too damaging to his Super eagles career, Semi Ajayi, Oghenekaro Etebo, Jamilu Collins all played outside of premier leagues and retained their Super Eagles status.

    No need to move to Turkey out of desperation

    Omeruo by now supposed to be in a top club that play in Champions league. Moving back to Turkey is not good for his career, especially now that SE center back is more competitive.
