Zungu poised for Amiens departure?

SA Players Abroad

Bongani Zungu has attracted widespread interest around Europe after signalling his intent to leave Ligue 1 outfit Amiens.

Zungu, 27, completed his third season in the French top-flight since his €2-million move from Vitória Guimarães in August 2017.

Having seen a move to Real Mallorca scuppered on transfer deadline day in January, Zungu regrouped and featured in six of the last seven league games before the campaign was cancelled with 10 fixtures remaining.

While his side were initially relegated due to their final standings being calculated by points per game ratio, the French high-court reversed the decision and reinstated both Amiens and Toulouse back into the top-flight.

However, with the South Africa international recently revealing his desire for a new challenge, a host of club's around Europe are said to be vying for his services.

According to Courrier Picard, the former Mamelodi Sundowns star is likely to earn his wish to move on with 'foreign and French teams' including Racing Strasbourg monitoring his situation.

The report further adds that the 24-time capped Bafana Bafana midfielder is likely to command a transfer fee of €5-million as Amiens look towards a squad shake-up in the off-season.
