Brighton, Norwich and Crystal Palace are all keen on Genk striker Mbwana Samatta, and he could be available for as little as €10m.
That’s according to Het Laatste Nieuws, who report the Genk striker is keen on making a move to a big European league after shining this season.
Samatta has seven goals in 20 games for Genk this season, but three of those have come in the Champions League, with one against Liverpool at Anfield particularly standing out.
He was also the top goalscorer in the Jupiler League last season, and that form has caught the attention of many, particularly in the Premier League.
Brighton, Norwich and Crystal Palace are all interested according to HLN, who say all three have ‘closely followed’ Samatta’s progress.
At Brighton, Samatta would be reunited with former teammate Leandro Trossard, as well as adding further competition for summer signing Neal Maupay.
Crystal Palace, meanwhile, are looking for a replacement for Christian Benteke while Norwich need extra firepower to support Teemu Pukki.
A deal would not be too expensive either, with a fee of ‘around ten million’ thought to be enough to tempt Genk into a sale.
They have ‘high hopes’ that Samatta will stay, particularly as getting a work permit to play in England is likely to be tricky, but are aware that things could quickly ‘gain momentum’.
Samatta, for his part, is keen on a move to the Premier League as he would like to be the first Tanzanian to play there, although the ‘sport project’ is the most important thing to him when it comes to choosing a move.
