Yusupha Bobb might move on again after barely spending five months at Italian side Taranto, Foroyaa Sport can report.
The former Gambia U-20 star is on the wish-list of a number of clubs notable among them being promoting-pursuing outfits, who if the current league standings any to go by, are on a better footing than the Gambian’s current team, Taranto.
Cosenza and Pordenone are sides ardent on making an immediate return to Italy Serie B (second division). The clubs, particularly Cosenza, want to beef up their set up and consider Bobb an ideal man to add to a tiring midfield.
But for their plans of acquiring the 22-year-old’s services they will require to shove aside competition from Pordenone, who like ambitious Cosenza, are willing to push the limits to snap up the Gambian.
Yusupha, whose Taranto of a club are five places above the relegation zone, won’t be any short of takers should he opt for a transfer. However, for a deal to be brokered, either Cosenza or Pordenone would need to seek Chievo Verona’s permission, the player’s parent club.
Verona sent the Gambian out on loan August last year to rake up playing minutes and would listen to clubs with a better proposal and who could guarantee the youngster’s rapid development.
The erstwhile Hawks midfielder is getting rave reviews at Taranto and has featured thirteen (13) times for the side, eleven of those from the starting lineup.
But the side, chastised a sinking ship by pundits, are seriously plummeting losing ten (10) of their twenty-two (22) league matches, drawing eight (8) times and managing to pull off just four (4).
