Club Brugge Koninklijke Voetbalvereniging have confirmed the signing of Nigeria international David Okereke from Spezia and the striker has penned a four-year contract, the Belgian Division A club said on Tuesday.
Okereke’s transfer fee is reportedly worth €8m according to MKT.
Southampton, Crystal Palace, West Ham United and Standard Liege were linked with Okereke in the Summer Transfer Window.
The Nigeria international has established himself as one of European football’s brightest prospects ever since moving to Spezia’s in 2016.
He won’t act as a like for like replacement for Wesley who recently joined Aston Villa, but Okereke’s arrival will soften the blow of losing the Brazilian.
The Nigerian turns 21 next month and had an impressive 2018/19 Serie B season with 10 goals and 12 assists.
