Transfer: Danish club, FC Copenhagen attempts to Hijack Dessers’ move to Cremonese

Danish club FC Copenhagen is making a last-minute effort to sign Nigerian forward, Cyriel Dessers from Genk.

Serie A newcomers, Cremonese are reportedly close to agreeing on a deal with Belgian Pro League side, Genk for the striker.

Danish website bt.dk reported that Dessers was in Denmark on Tuesday to meet with FC Copenhagen coach, Jess Thorup and the club’s sports director, Peter Christiansen.

Dessers is well known to Thorup as the latter coached the Nigerian during his brief spell as Genk manager during the 2019/20 season.

The 27-year-old spent last season on loan at Eredivisie club, Feyenoord Rotterdam.

Dessers caught the eye with his impressive displays in the UEFA Europa Conference League where he scored 10 goals in 12 appearances.

The former Utrecht player was on target in Genk’s 3-2 defeat to champions Club Brugge last weekend.
