TRANSFERS Zulte Waregem key player Theo Bongonda is on Anderlecht's list. Het Nieuwsblad knows that Purple & White asked about the transfer options at the entourage of the player. Het Laatste Nieuws knows that Essevee wants to cooperate in a transfer, but is counting on a large transfer fee.
With eight goals and ten assists this season, Bongonda reached full maturity on his second stay at the Gaverbeek. A year ago Zulte Waregem paid 1.6 million euros to Celta de Vigo to retrieve his youth product. Now it wants a multiple of this amount for the 23-year-old winger.
On Monday, Bongonda and the board of Zulte Waregem sat together. The player said he wants to go higher and the club wants to cooperate. But only for the right price. Zulte Waregem wants to make Bongonda his most expensive outgoing transfer ever (now it is Lerager who went to Bordeaux for 3 million euros). If Bongonda stays in Belgium, he will probably be the most expensive transfer ever between two Belgian clubs (now 5 million euros of Rezaei).
In addition to Anderlecht, Club Bruges, Genk and Ghent also informed. The most concrete interest comes from Germany. The coach of that club even scouted Bongonda personally.
