Race To Sign Tino Kadewere: Lig 1 Giant Team At The Forefront
Recent reports indicate that Montpellier, a French Ligue 1 side, is aggressively pursuing a deal to sign the 27-year-old Zimbabwean striker, Tino Kadewere, ahead of the new season. Discussions between Montpellier and Lyon, where Kadewere currently plays, have intensified, with Montpellier showing a keen interest in acquiring the talented forward.
Allezpaillade, a reputable French publication, was among the first to report on Kadewere’s interest in joining Montpellier. According to their sources, the Zimbabwean international is enthusiastic about the prospect of donning the Montpellier jersey.
While talks between Kadewere and Montpellier had stalled earlier, recent developments have seen significant progress made by both parties. Montpellier’s pursuit of the player has been accelerated by the fact that Kadewere is considered surplus to requirements at Lyon, making him an attainable target for the club.
Valued at approximately €4 million in the transfer market and with only one year left on his contract with Lyon, Kadewere’s price tag remains relatively low. This attractive proposition has further fueled Montpellier’s determination to secure the striker’s services swiftly.
Montpellier faces competition from other clubs, with Leganés, a team from Spain’s second tier, also expressing interest in the player. However, Montpellier appears to be leading the race, and the club’s management is hopeful of finalizing the deal in the near future.
Tino Kadewere made the move to Lyon in 2020, signing a long-term contract set to expire in 2024. Despite showing promise, he has struggled to establish himself in Lyon’s squad, prompting the club’s decision to allow him to seek opportunities elsewhere.
As the transfer talks progress, football fans eagerly anticipate Kadewere’s potential move to Montpellier. The coming days may reveal whether he will indeed join the French Ligue 1 side and add his skills to their attacking lineup.
