Olympic Eagles Striker Sadiq Close To Torino Deal

By Johnny Edward:

AS Roma’s Nigerian striker Umar Sadiq is reportedly on the verge of joining Italian Serie A club Torino on a one-year loan deal.

Sadiq, who spent last season on loan at Bologna where he featured in just seven games due to injuries, is expected to undergo a medical with Torino on Tuesday.

If the deal is completed, Sadiq will join Joel Obi at the club and will also become the third Nigerian to feature for the Bulls.

The Olympic Eagle will be the second choice striker to last season’s Serie A third highest scorer, Andrea Belotti who scored 26 goals and got seven assists.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio’s official website, Sadiq will join Torino permanently next summer for a fee in the region of €6m.
