English clubs are set to make more attempts to sign Ludogorets forward Jonathan Cafu in the next summer, Sport Witness has learned. After sides such as Crystal Palace and Stoke City didn’t reach the demands made by the Bulgarian side in January, the list of interested clubs has freshened up this time.
Currently ahead of the competition are Brighton and Hove Albion, who are already aware of the transfer conditions, and Ludogorets wait for a call from the club to learn their real intentions.
In the next few days, Leicester City and West Ham are both set to hold meetings for the player as well, where they will be informed about the conditions to sign him. Apart from the English clubs, there’s interest from Portugal and Italy as well.
With 14 goals and 9 assists this season, Cafu has impressed both in the domestic league as in Europe, and put in good performances against Arsenal and Paris Saint Germain.
Sport Witness was also learned the player has a €12m release clause, and that’s what Ludogorets will push for to sell him. For Leicester City, West Ham, and newly promoted Brighton, the figure shouldn’t be considered too high.
