As with every other league in the world, the Serbian super league experiences the Annual Summer Transfer Rumour Chitter-Chatter. Last week the Titus Bramble To Red Star story was doing the rounds – nothing has come of that so far (shock) – but nothing more exciting than that has turned up recently.
Red Star have been linked with Azubuike Egwuekwe, a towering centre back from Nigeria’s Confed Cup squad. Such a signing would surely put paid to the Bramble rumours – alas – especially considering that Red Star have already brought Peruvian centre back Miguel Araujo Blanco to the club. Egwuekwe is a pretty decent prospect, and a player of his class will surely stand out in the Serbian league, so this would be a great piece of business for Red Star.
Meanwhile, it looks as if Stefan Šćepović of Partizan could be on his way to Spain to join Sporting Gijon. Stefan’s younger brother Marko, also at Partizan, has himself been linked with a transfer to foreign climes, so this is something that might make such a move more likely, although this is very much conjecture.
Interestingly, two Japanese footballers, Keisuke Ogawa and Shohei Okuno, are on trial at Sloboda Užice, a regional club from the west of Serbia.
So, a thrilling round-up there, as you can see. When something more exciting happens, I’ll be sure to let you know. Fingers crossed for the Bramble deal.
