Standard Liege Favourite To Sign Nigerian Striker Okereke From Spezia Despite Interest From Eibar


David Okereke is likely to join Belgium side Standard Liege if he leaves Italian Serie B side Spezia according to reports gathered by editorial team.


The forward was close to joining the Belgium side in the summer before deciding to extend his contract with Spezia till the summer of 2022 ahead of the start of this season.

Since then he has made seven appearances in the Serie B with a goal and three assists to his name from his role as a left winger as opposed to his preferred position as a top striker.

Eibar were among the teams to have sounded out the 21 year old over a possible transfer but the forward and his advisers are pinning for a move to Standard Liege who are still interested in signing him.

Spezia hold the ace to any potential departure for the former Abuja Academy graduate but reports has it that a fee of around €1.5m should be enough to tempt the Serie B side into selling.
