According to leaks picked up by owngoalnigeria.com Nigeria CHAN 2013 highest goal scorer Chisom Chikatara is favourably disposed to the idea of joining Tunisian giants Esperance than Morrocan side Wydad Casablanca.
Owngoalnigeria.com has since reported Esperance interest in Chikatara but Abia Warriors chairman Emeka Inyama who can easily pass as Chikatara’s father caused a furore when he went to Morrocco and agreed a transfer fee with Wydad Casablance of Morrocco.
Although they have already agreed a transfer fee with Abia Warriors for the transfer of the 22 year old but the personal terms on offer for him is nothing in comparism to what Esperance reportedly offered him.
However Abia Warriors are skeptical of doing business with Esperance of Tunisia even though the Tunisians can pay more in terms of transfer fee but their poor records in terms of paying agreed transfer fees to Nigeria team is giving Abia Warriors cause for concern.
Chikatara on his part is insisting on Esperance or a move abroad as he will earn more unlike a move to Wydad Casablanca.
For now reports of interest from a team in Russia is wide off the mark as the only team presently pushing to sign Chikatara is Esperance and the player for that singular reason is stalling on the already agreed deal with Wydad Casablanca.
