The Agent of Musa Barrow, Luigi Sorrentino, has confirmed to a local media in Italy, Il Resto del Carlino, that Premier League side Fulham and French League one outfit, Nice, have all come forward for the Gambian International. Still, Bologna’s high asking price is blocking a transfer.
“𝗧𝗼𝗿𝗶𝗻𝗼 𝘄𝗮𝗻𝘁𝘀 𝗵𝗶𝗺 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗵𝗲 𝘄𝗮𝘀 𝗮𝗹𝘀𝗼 𝗿𝗲𝗾𝘂𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗱 𝗯𝘆 𝗡𝗶𝗰𝗲 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗙𝘂𝗹𝗵𝗮𝗺 𝗯𝘂𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗱𝗲𝗺𝗮𝗻𝗱𝘀 𝗼𝗳 𝗕𝗼𝗹𝗼𝗴𝗻𝗮 𝗯𝗹𝗼𝗰𝗸 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗲𝘅𝗶𝘁,” The forward’s representative told the local Bolognese outlet.
It’s been two months now since it was first reported that Barrow is on the wishlist of Marco Silva’s Fulham squad reinforcement. However, the newly promoted Premier League side is now pushing for Roma’s young Netherlands forward, Justin Kluivert, as a move for the Gambian sensation looks unlikely with the demands of Bologna.
Musa Barrow’s Agent, Luigi Sorrentino, said that he and his client are not happy with the Gambian’s current moment in the Bologna squad.
“𝗪𝗲 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗰𝗲𝗿𝘁𝗮𝗶𝗻𝗹𝘆 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝗵𝗮𝗽𝗽𝘆. 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗰𝗹𝘂𝗯 𝗮𝘀𝗸𝘀 𝗳𝗼𝗿 €𝟭𝟲𝗺𝗶𝗹𝗹𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗜 𝘄𝗼𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗿 𝗵𝗼𝘄 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗰𝗮𝗻 𝗮𝘀𝗸 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝘀𝘂𝗰𝗵 𝗮 𝗳𝗶𝗴𝘂𝗿𝗲 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝗮 𝗯𝗼𝘆 𝘄𝗵𝗼 𝗱𝗼𝗲𝘀𝗻’𝘁 𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗻 𝗽𝗹𝗮𝘆?” Luigi stressed.
Barrow, one of the outstanding performers for the Rossoblu’s during the last 2021/22 season, scoring six goals and assisting six others, has managed only 17 minutes in two league matches for Bologna so far this new season.
However, as the transfer window closes next week, the Cottagers could still turn their back to Barrow if Bologna is willing to listen to a lower price than the demanded £14m.
