According to reports in Turkey, several Italian clubs have expressed their interest in Ghanaian forward, Caleb Ekuban.

After two goals in 22 appearances for Leeds United in the English Championship last season, the pacy forward was loaned out to Trabzonspor ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.

The 25-year-old has shown the sort of form that was never evident at Elland Road over in Turkey.

Playing out wide, in a number 10 role or as an out-and-out striker, Ekuban has netted seven goals and created three assists this season.

Leeds allowed a clause in the loan deal that gave Trabzonspor the chance to sign the forward in the summer for £900k and according to Turkish outlet Millyet, the club’s president will activate the clause.

Ekuban knows all about Italian football having come through the ranks with Chievo at the start of his career.

At this stage, Takvim seems unclear as to which sides in Italy are keen on the forward.
