With the transfers still on and clubs are still permitted to sign players until the end of the close of the transfer window, as La Liga giants want Super Eagles attacker to replace their wantaway striker.
Real Sociedad has set sight on the signing of Almeria striker Umar Sadiq to replace Alexander Isak who completes a move to Premier League team Newcastle United.
Isak,22, joined Newcastle United for €70 million and his departure has left a void in the attacking set-up of the team with the club’s board keen on signing Almeria attacker.
Umar has been the talking point of his team following their promotion to Spanish topflight and he has been linked with a move to the other teams before now with interest from Villarreal, Sevilla, and Getafe and the latest to join the wagon is the Basque team with the interest seems strong from Real Sociedad who need to ship in a replacement before the close the transfer period which is less than a week.
Sodiq helped his team to a 1-1 draw against Elche last weekend in La Liga and it appears his days are getting over with the newly promoted team with the interest from Real Sociedad keeps knocking as the team is pressed without a real number nine following the sale of the Swede attacker.
The reports in Eldesmarque revealed that the San Sebastian outfit sees the Nigerian attacker as a direct replacement for Isak who has joined Newcastle United, Real Sociedad is keen on offering €18 million for the former AS Roma attacker with the Almeria board only interested in selling their most prized asset for €30 million.
Real Sociedad is one of the Spanish teams who will compete in the Europa League this season after finishing sixth in the Spanish top flight last season.
