French Ligue 1 side Monace have tabled a bid for hot in demand Nigerian wing forward Samuel Kalu who currently plays for Belgium side Gent, Owngoalnigeria.com can exclusively reveal.
The bid from Monaco arrived at the start of the month but Gent are yet to respond to the bid as they are also mulling over interest from two German Bundesliga side in Hoffeinheim and Bayern Leverkusen.
It is believed that the forward prefers a move to the German Bundesliga but the teams interested in his services are yet to follow up their interest with a bid, although that could happen in the summer.
Monaco are however keen on wrapping up his signing as their bid is believed to be close to Gent’s valuation of the forward which is around the €20m mark.
However Gent are wary of losing both Moses Simon and Kalu in the same window but a bidding war for the later could force them to have a rethink and consider letting go of the Nigerian duo.
