Super Eagles defender Jamiu Alimi has been linked with a summer move away from Kano Pillars with French side Nantes leading the chase for his signature, Completesportsnigeria.com has gathered.
The former Sharks FC and Shooting Stars defender has also been linked with two clubs in Turkey.
“He is close to a move to Europe this summer as three teams have made enquiries over his availability,” one of Alimi’s agents told Completesportsnigeria.com.
“And we are in talks with one of them so we hope things go as planned because he is ready to move.”
Alimi has made 21 appearances for Pillars who are currently pushing for the Nigeria Professional Football League title.
He was also listed among the 32 players in the provisional squad released by Nigeria Professional Football League All Stars for the La Liga Tour billed for August.
They will face Valencia CF and also feature in the Carranza La Liga World Club Tournament in Malaga CF between August 12 and 13.
