It’s time for the money for Club Brugge. The champion is looking for his first offensive transfer and has made an offer for Mohamed Darami, the 19-year-old winger at Copenhagen FC. In Denmark, Blue and Black were told they must break the transfer record of 8 million to fulfill the Danish international promise. Danish sources even talk about an offer of 12 million euros.
After their unsuccessful courtship with Barcelona player Alex Collado, Club Brugge have a new transfer target on their sights. Mohamed Darami is a 19-year-old international under-23 player from Denmark. He broke through the ranks of FC Copenhagen’s main team two seasons ago and is considered one of the greatest talents in his country. Last summer he played the European Championship of Promises with former Anderlecht mercenary Jacob Bron Larsen. At the age of 19, he has already played in 88 professional matches, in which he scored 15 times and made 7 assists.
The club sees the Danish and Sierra Leonean winger as the ideal man to succeed Crippen Diatta. Daramy is fast and technical, and can cut both inside and out. He usually plays from the right. He needs to give more depth to the club’s attack – a flaw that has arisen since Diatta’s departure.
FC Copenhagen confirmed yesterday that it had received an offer to buy Dharamy and entered into negotiations with Club Brugge. According to Danish sources, the highest bid in the region will be 90 million Danish kroner (12 million euros). The club itself does not want to officially comment, but confirms that it has made a line clear to the player.
So far, Club Brugge has been very patient in the transfer market. After selling Odilon Kossounou to Leverkusen (just under 30 million) and injecting capital from American investor Orkila Capital (20 million), she had enough money to enter the transfer market. But she doesn’t want to be crammed into a corner selling clubs because of a whole fair. This is why Blue-Black has offered modest sums so far, in the hope that prices will drop further at the end of the transfer window. This happened, for example, with the Colombian Sebastian Villa (Boca Juniors) or the American Owen Otasoy (Wolverhampton).
In the case of dharamy, the club can change the speed. Sunday is August 15th and there are still two weeks to complete the transfer. The first league matches showed that the club could use high-quality injections. Collado’s transfer was close, but he eventually jumped because the Club wanted to include a purchase option in the rent. Maybe he wants to go all out for the sake of the drama.
If Dharamy moved to Club Brugge for a sum of more than €8 million, it would immediately be the new record transfer. The previous record holder, David O’Keerick, is in turn heading towards the director. On Wednesday, the Nigerian was reportedly seen in Venice for medical examinations with doctoral student Venezia. Club Brugge is trying to hire the striker with a purchase option. Apart from his early months, Okereke never had success in Bruges.
