TRANSFERS Anderlecht are not planning to attract many players this winter mercato. That's what Peter Verbeke says. For one position, however, they are looking out: the one of right back. Also because Amir Murillo (photo) might make a transfer soon.


Murillo is the only real right back in Anderlecht's selection at the moment. If he doesn't play, Sergio Gomez, Bogdan Mykhaylichenko or Killian Sardella play at right back. "In that position we are thinking about strengthening," Verbeke admitted.

Last summer Murillo could have gone to Spartak Moscow, but Anderlecht did not let him go because Nmecha and Sambi Lokonga had already left. "Amir had a hard time with that for a while," Verbeke said. "So we will see what we do if another club comes knocking."

"We also have youth player Nayel Mehssatou as an alternative," Verbeke concludes. Although the question arises whether Vincent Kompany already considers him ready for the first team. The Chilean Belgian did not make the game sheet yet. Not even when Murillo was suspended.
