Bongani Zungu remains a wanted man in Europe, with Greek giants, Olympiacos, the latest club to make a move for the South African international.
The 25-year-old midfielder is currently going through preseason with Amiens in France after an impressive first season in Ligue 1, and he has continued to catch the eye of suitors elsewhere as he makes a name for himself on the continent.
According to Siya sources, Olympiacos – who have Zungu’s former Vitoria de Guimareas coach, Pedro Martins, in charge – have submitted a bid of around €7,000,000 (R107m) for the former Mamelodi Sundowns man, and are looking to persuade Amiens into letting him leave.
The club will be playing UEFA Europa League football this season after finishing third in Greece in 2017/18, and will no doubt be hoping that a player like Zungu can help them push for next year’s Champions League tournament.
It is known that Amiens are reluctant to let Zungu, one of their key players, leave as they prepare for their second season back in the top-flight, and it remains to be seen how much it would take for them to consider selling.
The likes of Torino in Italy, and Olympique Lyonnais and Monaco in France, have shown an interest before, though as things stand, Zungu remains an Amiens player.
