Clubs in Belgium and the Netherlands are looking to sign Nigeria International Cyriel Dessers from Cremonese if the Italians relegate from the top flight at the end of the season.
Dessers joined the Serie A strugglers in the summer from Belgian side Genk for €6.5 million after his impressive loan spell with Dutch giants Feyenoord helping them reach the finals of the maiden edition of the UEFA Europa Conference League losing to AS Roma, but the Nigerian finished as the competition’s top scorer with 10 goals.
The 28-year-old has struggled with form and consistency during his time in Italy and this has affected the team adversely as they currently sit 19th on the log and with the hopes of remaining in the league at the end of the season dwindling with four more games till the end of the season.
He’s found the back of the next just six times in 26 games while providing two assists, a far cry from the performance expected of him when he joined the club in the summer, however, according to reports in Belgium, clubs are already looking to snatch him away from Cremonese at least on loan if the price tag is on the high side.
While speaking in the 90 minutes podcast session, football journalist Filip Joos and Sam Kerkhofs there is every possibility that the Nigerian will return to either Belgium or the Netherlands, “Dessers plays less and less. Will he return to Belgium? I hope so.”
The attacker is under contract with Cremonese until 2027 which will make an outright buy out for any club a bit difficult.
