It seems that Anderlecht has found its reinforcement. This is Janik Bollasi, 29, loaned by Everton in Aston Villa. The value of the player is estimated at 15 million by transfer. Bolasi is a wing, not a leading striker.
The player arrived on Belgian territory shortly after 21 o'clock. He took the direct direction of Neerpede where he was waiting for medical tests, as well as his contract. It is likely to warm up in the corridors of Mavi's training center to conclude the agreement before midnight. But clubs are used to manage transfers at the last minute and this should be done.
The file (again) started in the middle of the day
Anderlecht's management was at the La Bella Vita restaurant in Neerpod this afternoon but did not want to confirm the name that left the site. Michael Vershuren, Frank Arnesen, coach Fred Rutten and Johan Plancke (assistant manager), however, smiled and looked relaxed, which is a good sign.
From an English source, everything is settled and the player is on his way to Anderlecht. If the situation does not change in Markovic / Mitrovic (whose transfers took place at the last minute last summer), the loan without the option of buying will be formalized in the coming hours. The arrival of Janik Bolasi means that the transfer ends at the level of arrivals. Anderlecht told Luzern that Elek's transfer was out of the water.
