Ivan Kmotrík Jr told Sportrevue, as translated by The Daily Record “We’ve also received an offer from the Arab world and other countries.

“It is possible that Andraz will stay, but the offers are already at a level that would be interesting for the club.

“I don’t want to get into specifics but if the transfer is completed Sporar will certainly be the most expensive transfer out of Slovakia.”

According to WhoScored, Sporar has scored 12 goals in 11 league appearances, and has scored five goals and has provided two assists in six Europa League games for Slovan so far this season.
