Turkish Giants Go To War Over #2.4 Billion Rated Nigerian Striker


Two of Turkey’s most prominent clubs Galatasaray and Fenerbahce are set to go to battle it out for Trabzonspor attacking ace Anthony Nwakaeme when his contract expires next summer, Owosports.com.ng reports.

With less than a year left on his current deal, Nwakaeme is yet to sign a contract extension with Trabzonspor, encouraging other clubs to try and convince the Nigerian to switch sides.

The 32-year-old joined the Black Sea Storm in August 2018 on a three-year deal and had it extended in 2019 until June next year.

The highlight of Nwakaeme’s time at Trabzonspor is a Turkish Cup win in 2020, a Super Cup triumph in 2021, and a Super Lig runners-up medal last year.

It could get even better for the one-cap Super Eagles star as Trabzonspor presently lead the Turkish league table after 11 rounds of matches.

Abdullah Avci’s men have won eight games, losing none, while holding a four-point lead over second-place Hatayspor.

Nwakaeme has played a vital role in that brilliant run, contributing five goals and two assists in ten appearances.

Transfermarkt rates the Nigerian international, who joined Trabzonspor for €1.1 million, at €5 million (about N2.4 billion).
