Kingsley Sokari has demanded for more cash from Tunisia’s Esperance as clubs in Europe and Egypt have joined the chase for the Enyimba midfield ace.
Esperance and Enyimba have agreed a transfer fee for Sokari, who has been capped by Nigeria at U20, U23 and full international levels.
What is now left is for Esperance to agree personal terms with the player, who is expected this week to fly out to Tunisia with his agent for the negotiations.
He and his agent have been issued express visa to Tunisia, but it remains a fluid situation because Al Ahly of Egypt and now an unnamed French club have jumped into the race to sign the player fresh from the U20 World Cup in New Zealand.
“Sokari wants more money from Esperance and he and his agent may well stall unless they get their way as they have several other clubs in Europe and Africa after the player now and they have been begged to hold on for formall offers from them shortly,” a source said.
