Etebo has been linked with a move ‎away from the Portuguese side since the start of the year, Portuguese giants FC Porto among the teams rumoured to be eyeing a move for the 22 year old.

Genk met with his representatives last week and a bid in the region of €8m was tendered to Feirense, with the option of a percentage due to Feirense if the Nigerian leaves Genk in the future.
