Montpellier join Rennes in chase to sign Sierra Leone striker Turay

The latest transfer news and gossip to emerge from France and Sweden.

Montpellier FC have joined Rennes in the race to sign Sierra Leone international Mohamed Buya Turay.

Both French top-flight clubs are reportedly preparing to engage in a fierce transfer battle to sign Turay from AFC Eskilstuna.

Buya, 22, can leave AFC Eskilstuna despite the striker has two years left on his present Eskilstuna contract.

French website Footmercato.net reiterated that Montpellier and Rennes have shown serious interest in Buya. In addition, another French club, Dijon, has offered a bid for Buya.

“I can confirm interest from several countries without specifically mentioning club names. It is natural that clubs in Europe have spotted his talent, among other things.

“Buya, if not the best is among the best attackers in Sweden,” the striker’s agent Gabriel Dikmen Josephson told footballsierraleone.net.

The striker, who scored nine goals and three assistants in 23 Allsvenskan appearances including a brace in their 3-1 win over Malmo on August 19th for relegated AFC Eskilstuna this year, is presently on vacation in his native hometown.
