Turkish club to ‘pay big’ for Ike Uche


Ambitious Turkish club Bursaspor is keen on snapping up Nigeria international striker Ikechukwu Uche for a fee of about three million Euros, MTNFootball.com reports.

According to media reports in Turkey, Bursaspor is ready to break the bank for the 29-year-old free-scoring striker, whose older brother Kalu Uche was an instant hit in his first season in Turkey as he finished as highest scorer for Istanbul club Kasimpasa.

Last season, ambitious Bursaspor finished fourth and could now feature in the UEFA Champions League following the recent ban of Fenerbache and Besiktas for match fixing.

The younger Uche was a 2013 African Nations Cup winner with Nigeria and scored 14 goals in 32 games to propel Villarreal back to La Liga in Spain this past season.

He has been in Spain for 11 years during which time he has played for Racing Ferrol, Recreativo de Huelva, Getafe, Real Zaragoza and Granada.

The little striker, who has scored 18 goals in 44 games for Nigeria, is deadly inside the box and can take on his markers.

However, since the AFCON he has been overlooked by Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi.
