Indomitable Lions of Cameroon and Al Nassr of Saudi Arabia forward Vincent Aboubakar has told the club he wants a new challenge elsewhere, thus making him unavailable for the rest of the season, kick442.com has been briefed.
We understand Aboubakar who’s current contract expires in June 2024 had a meeting with the club’s French trainer Rudi Garcia on Thursday to discuss his future.
The Cameroon international who joined Al Nassr just over a year ago from FC Porto on a three-year deal was categoric about his desire to leave despite Garcia’s efforts to keep him. Aboubakar is thus unlikely to honor contract with his current employers.
Aboubakar, 30, wants Al Nassr officials to negotiate his transfer or loan deal with any serious club that manifests interest between now and the end of the January window.
Scorer of four goals in seven games this season, Aboubakar’s market value stands at €6 which is peanut for some of the big spenders in the market.
Our understanding is the former Valenciennes and FC Lorient goal poacher wants to return to central Europe where he needs no introduction.
We understand Besiktas who benefited from Aboubakar’s goals poweress during two loan spells to win the Turkish Super League are trying to bring back him back to Istanbul just like Manchester United who have tabled a bid.
Saudi Arabia-owned Premier League side Newcastle United FC are also keen on bringing the Cotonsport-made striker to Tyynside at a time Eddie Howe is working wonders with a relatively modest squad.
The next few days are thus busy for Aboubakar and his entourage, but where will he end up??
