Gambia international striker Ibou Sawaneh is currently the country’s most talked about player in the transfer market as four clubs have shown interest in the services of the OH Leuven forward.
Relegated English Premier League club Reading, French Ligue 1 side AS Saint-Étienne, Dutch Eredivisie club FC Utrecht and Tunisian Ligue Professionnelle 1 side Club Africain are all interested in the 5ft 10in striker.
Sawaneh earlier on courted interest from Bayer 04 Leverkusen, who viewed the Gambian as a potential replacement for André Schürrle who left for Chelsea, but the German Bundesliga side sudden cold approach over a swoop for the former Lech Poznań forward seems to cool the flames of any prospective deal thus opening the door for these four clubs.

Jozef Piaček headed in the only goal as Momodou “Zico” Ceesay’s MŠK Žilina, group stage participants two seasons ago, condemned Israeli Premier League champions Hapoel Ironi Kiryat Shmona F.C to defeat in their first UEFA Champions League match at the Štadión Pod Dubňom.
It seemed the hosts’ chance of establishing a lead to carry into next Tuesday’s second qualifying round second leg had lapsed when impressive Kiryat Shmona goalkeeper Daniel Amos saved Ricardo Nunes’ 81st-minute penalty.
Piaček, however, redeemed his team-mate by directing in captain Miroslav Barčík’s corner 60 seconds later. Amos frustrated the Slovakian side on more than one occasion before he was eventually beaten, denying Zico Ceesay early on from a tight angle and then Piaček from Nunes’ centre.
