Bafana Bafana and Amiens SC midfielder Bongani Zungu continues to attract interest from European clubs as his agent Alexis Ramalingam confirms he is talking to a French club and others in Europe.
The former Mamelodi Sundowns anchorman is reportedly on the radar of Scottish giants Rangers FC but his handler has refused to name the clubs that are keen to land the South African's signature.
Meanwhile, reports in Scotland suggests the recently-relegated Amiens are willing to let ‘Ben10’ leave for around €4million (approximately £3.8million) after he entered into the last year of his contract in the north of France.
“There’s a big possibility that he leaves France this summer but we can’t comment about any clubs for now in order to respect the clubs we are in talks with,” Ramalingam told Scotsman.
“There’s interest in Ligue 1 and in other parts of Europe but I just can’t reveal where for now.”
Just after his club was relegated to Ligue 2 following a decision to call the 2019/20 Ligue1 campaign was forcefully completed because of the coronavirus pandemic, Zungu expressed his desire to further his career elsewhere in Europe.
The publication indicates that a long-term deal is on the table waiting for Zungu should the two teams eventually come to an agreement, with the Bafana international eager to make the switch to Scotland and play Uefa Europa League football under Steven Gerrard next season.
In addition, the Scottish outlet has it that the team managed by former Liverpool midfielder and skipper is prepared to pay the money wanted by Amiens.
The former University of Pretoria midfielder parted ways with the reigning Premier Soccer League (PSL) champions and joined Vitoria de Guimaraes in Portugal in 2016, before finding his way to Amiens in Ligue 1 the following year.
Zungu came close to completing his switch to Real Mallorca in the Spanish La Liga in the January transfer window, but the French club opted to retain his services at the last hour but that has not affected the 27-year-old’s interest of going to play in the Spanish top-flight.
Taking a look at his contribution this past term, the Duduza-born midfielder featured in 24 games across all competitions and netted a single goal and one assist.
