Levante close in on Armando SadikuJanuary 31, 2018
Levante are only steps away from closing the deal to sign Albanian striker Armando Sadiku from Legia Warsaw, according to Superdeporte.
The Albanian is currently participating in a winter camp in Benidrom which is a 90 minute drive away from Valencia, during the camp Legia had played a match against Danish club Silkeborg and it ended with a 2-0 victory for Legia with Sadiku scoring one of the goals.
The Albanian international who had only signed for Legia last summer will cost Levante €1 Million and will be signing a 3 year contract with the Valencian club. Moreover, the fact that Sadiku was already fluent in the Spanish language was key in Levante choosing him as their reinforcement.
As an international for Albania Sadiku has made 32 appearances scoring 11 goals for the senior team. Sadiku was also part of the Albanian squad that played in the Euro 2016 Chamionship in France where he scored a goal in Albania’s 1-0 victory against Romania which made him the first player to score a goal in a European Championship in the history of the Albanian National Team.
It is worth noting that Levante have tried signing French International striker Loïc Rémy from Las Palmas before Las Palmas opted to loan him to Getafe to avoid strengthening a direct rival club.
