For her interest AEK for Yannick Westergaard her Leicester the English “Sun” speaks, according to which the doubles have contacted the “foxes” for the transfer of the Danish central defender!
The publication states that the “Union” is willing to give something more than 4.5 million euros to make the 30-year-old stopper her own, amount that he is quite down from the requirements of the English club. After all, Leicester had spent 17.6 “papers” to bring him from Southampton in 2021.
The international stopper had recorded full years with the “saints”, but also with the Gladbach, Werder Bremen and Hoffenheim earlier, however, in Leicester he found it dark. Continued injury problems, as well as mediocre performances, limited his presence in the “foxes” to 23 matches in a two-year period, while in the 2022/23 season he played just once in the Cup.
In addition to the injuries, of course, there was also the deterioration of his relationship with former club manager Brendan Rodgers; due to his refusal to leave on loan to Fulham or Hertha Berlin at the start of 2023. The Scandinavian started in yesterday’s (14/07) 1-0 friendly win over Northampton, with Enzo Maresca questioned over his future and answers that “he’s our player, he’s training with us, we’ll see what happens.”
Given, however, that the 30-year-old defender is free in one year, and that the stopper Calum Doyle has already been acquired on loan from Manchester City, it is clear that Westergaard’s future at -relegated- Leicester does not look so auspicious.
Tsakiris: “A substantial colon has been added to the matter of the stopper – AEK does not sell its main players”
Substantial colon for the next few days enters the matter of acquiring a stopper in the AEK! This, at least, appears from his own words Matias Almeidaas pointed out by George Tsakiris to News Bulletin 247, conveying the latest news from the “yellow and black” reportage. The Argentinian coach of AEK spoke to the journalists sent shortly before the departure of the delegation from the Netherlands (his interview will be uploaded at noon on Sunday) and as Tsakiris underlined, what emerges is on the one hand that he is not going to rush and on the other hand that looking for something better or different for the rear from the Nestor Araujo.
“We’ll have to wait for Araujo, because it looks like the coach is also looking at another case. However, one has entered colon noun in the subject of the stopper, as Almeida wants either something different or something better. In any case, from what he told us, one understands that nor does he want to bring someone just to bring them and he is not going to rush. I don’t think we will have any substantial progress even until Tuesday-Wednesday. I do not rule out the Araujo casebut everything shows that the AEK coach is looking for something else“, the reporter pointed out.
From there, Tsakiris noted that Almeida was also asked about Levi Garciaanswering what has also been said by Dimitris Melissanidisthat, that is, the player is not for salewhile underlining that in AEK they estimate that his value is over 20 million euros. He also emphasized that, in general, the team has decided not to sell key players – that’s why they also rejected the proposal for Mukudi – in order not to spoil the homogeneity. Finally, for him Alexandropoulos he mentioned that the “Union” may be looking at his case, but has not moved to acquire him.
