Romano: "Villarreal to complete a €30m move for Almeria's Umar Sadiq"

Beating Real Valladolid 3-0 in their opening La Liga game, the Yellow Submarine are looking to add to their front-goal strength by signing Almeria forward.

According to

Fabrizio Romano

, Villarreal is closing on a €30m move for Almeria's striker

Umar Sadiq

. Scoring 18 goals and providing further 12 assists in 36 appearances last season, the


has been one of the more popular names this summer with Almeria’s CEO Mohamed El Assy confirming last week that Sadiq would soon complete a near-€30m move.

Sadiq joined


from the Serbian Club Partizan in October 2020 for a €9.00m fee and went on to score 41 goals in a total of 81 appearances for the La Liga side.



's Pervis Estupinan has also been linked with a move to Brighton for a reported €17m fee as the La Liga side would use the fund to invest in their squad. The Yellow Submarine has been strongly linked with

Giovani Lo Celso

as well as Umar Sadiq.

The 24-year-old


joined the Yellow Submarines in 2020 from Watford on a €16.4m deal. Although he joined Villarreal after he already established himself as one of the most impressive left-backs in La Liga after a season at Osasuna, he failed to live up to expectations at Villarreal as fell below Alberto Moreno and Alfonso Pedraza in the Unai Emery’s pecking order.

After a 3-0 victory against Valladolid, Villareal will face

Hajduk Split

in the Europa Conference League play-off this Thursday.
