Turkish Clubs BB Erzurumspor and Gençlerbirligi are in the race for the signature of 29-year-old Cameroonian forward Leandre Kana Tawamba.
The former Partizan Belgrade and Aigle Royal of Menoua forward has been a free agent since his departure from Saudi side Al Taawoun two months ago.
According reports in the Turkish media, Tawamba is a subject of interest from the above-mentioned institutions and contact has been established.
The Super Lig sides are keen on adding personel to their attacking department and are convinced Tawamba can do the job.
Saudi Arabian Club Al-Taawoun reportedly presented a new contract to the ex Aigle Royal of Menoua captain but he turned it down.
Having impressed in his time at the club, scoring 24 goals in 41 appearances.
The striker known for his ‘killer’ instints in front of goal, Tawamba made himself a great asset for the Buraidah-based club catapulting them to a third-placed finish last term and the Saudi King’s cup triumph in 2019.
The former Union Sportive of Douala man masterminded the club’s 2019 King’s Cup success, scoring in the final to end Al-Taawoun’s close to 10 years wait for a major trophy. He was subsequently voted the club’s player of the season. He left Al-Taawoun as a cult hero and is seeking a new home.
The former Cape Town city man has kept a trend of not spending more than two seasons at a Club since he left Cameroon.
Tawamba has won two caps for the indomitable Lions of Cameroon having featured for the Under-20’s of the Central African nation.
There have been rumors also linking him with a switch to England but limited number of games for the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon puts off Premier League options given the eligibility criteria for recruitment of non European Union footballers.
