On December 10th, multiple reports coming out of Belgium claimed Brighton & Hove Albion have ‘showed interest’ in Sint-Truiden’s Yohan Boli.
After netting 12 times in the Jupiler Pro League last season, the 26-year-old has managed 10 goals in 17 appearances this term.
The forward made his debut for Ivory Coast in September 2017, but then he lost his place with them. Boli’s impressive displays have helped the attacker regain his place back in the national team and at the same time, drawn interest from several clubs.
DH claims Sint-Truiden has received 10 ‘concrete offers’ for the African and this includes clubs from Germany, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and China, along with Brighton, Anderlecht, Galatasaray and Bordeaux.
Boli’s contract with the Belgian side runs down after this campaign and the report adds Sint-Truiden are ready to offload him in the winter market for €2-3m. The price tag shouldn’t be an issue for Brighton, but it’s down to the attacker in deciding his next destination.
The player has a lot of options and wants to make a decision before end of this year.
DH reports Boli’s decision doesn’t rest solely on wages as he wants to move to a competitive league to improve his chances of being picked for Ivory Coast.
