In a recent revelation by Italian Transfer Markt expert Fabrizio Romano, it has been disclosed that several clubs in the Saudi Arabian Professional League are expressing strong interest in acquiring the services of Nigerian defender William Troost-Ekong. This heightened interest is attributed to Troost-Ekong’s exceptional performances during the 2023 African Cup of Nations (AFCON).

Romano highlighted the impact of Troost-Ekong’s leadership on PAOK, propelling them to the summit of the Greek Super League and Europe Conference League. Despite his contentment at PAOK, the lure from Saudi clubs for the upcoming summer transfer window is reportedly substantial.

The Nigerian captain played a pivotal role in guiding the Super Eagles to the final of the 2023 AFCON, particularly in a thrilling semi-final clash against South Africa. Troost-Ekong’s contributions included a 67th-minute penalty goal and a crucial spot-kick during the nail-biting penalty shootout.

His aerial dominance and ability to win crucial long balls showcased his experience, even as he received a yellow card in the 120th minute of the match against the formidable Bafana Bafana. This, however, did not overshadow his overall stellar performance.
