Everton and Liverpool track Shehu Abdullahi

| Wednesday, 22 November 2017  0 Comment  [Jump to last]
Everton and Liverpool are interested in acquiring the services of Nigerian International defender Shehu Abdullahi, reports.

The 24-year-old right back who plays for Cypriot side Anorthosis Famagusta, is highly rated as one of the top ten right backs in the World currently."Yes we have offers from Spain, France, Italy and Merseyside clubs in England, a top source of Mitem Sports Sprl, the player representative told on Monday.

"We will study which offer is best for our client, since he will be a free agent after the World Cup the source concluded".Shehu has been in splendid form for both club and country as he helped Nigeria qualify for her sixth World Cup and also helped his club reach the summit of the Cypriot league table after 12 matches played.

A fine defender known for his man marking ability, horse like over lapping run and an eye for goal, as envident when his goal against Ermis was voted the second best goal in the Cypriot first division league for the 2016/2017 season.He will be a good addition to Liverpool or Everton, as both clubs cannot confidently lay claims of having a perfect understudy to Nathaniel Clyne and Seamus Coleman who are both first choice for Liverpool and Everton respectively.

Everton have used five different players (Cuco Martina, Mason Holgate, Kenny, Tom Davies and Dominic Calvert-Lewin) since the injury to first choice Seamus Coleman in March 2017.

And after 12 matches none of the five players has been able to hold on to a starting shirt for the next game.

Everton looks like the destination for Shehu Abdullahi judging from the fact that his representative Mitem Sports Sprl are also the representatives of Evertonian Henry Onyekuru.

A move away from Anorthosis Famagusta looks likely in January, but the management of the club are hoping to keep hold of their prized jewel even though he will be a free agent after the World Cup in Russia in 2018.
