According to Ghana Soccernet, Red Star Belgrade have received three offers for star striker Richmond Boakye – but he wants a move to England.
Boakye has been something of a nomad before joining Red Star in January, bouncing around the likes of Latina, Sassuolo, Roda JC and Elche after a 2012 move to Genoa.
Moving to Serbia in January of this year has been a blessing for Boakye though, as he hit 16 goals in 20 games to end last season – and his goalscoring exploits have continued this term with 22 goals in 27 appearances.
The Ghanaian hitman is being linked with a January move, and Ghana Soccernet report that Red Star have received three bids from other clubs around Europe in preparation for the transfer window opening.
It's claimed that Anderlecht have offered €6million (£5.25million), Rennes have offered €7million (£6.15million), and Besiktas have offered a loan-to-buy deal worth €9million (£7.9million), but his future remains far from clear.
The report states that Boakye has ruled out a move to China because he wants a move to England, which could also rule out Celtic, who are interested according to the Daily Mail.
That may just spell good news for Everton and Newcastle though, who want to sign Boakye according to Informer and ESPN respectively, but with three bids already on the table, they need to move quickly.
With a deal unlikely to cost more than £10million, Premier League clubs are unsurprisingly queueing up to sign Boakye, but his patchy record outside of Serbia should be a red flag for teams.
