Pyramids, ENPPI, two others in pursuit of Olawoyin

Top Egyptian Premier League sides including CAF Confederation Cup beaten finalist Pyramids and ENPPI are in hot chase for Rangers winger and playmaker Ibrahim Olawoyin, www.aclsports.com exclusively reports.

Olawoyin, 22, had a stellar season with the Flying Antelopes last term; scoring eight goals while thrilling thousands of Rangers fans with his skills and impeccable football intelligence before the Coronavirus pandemic ensured that the season was truncated.

The winger is now set to move to Egypt before the next Egyptian League season commences next month and ACLSports sources in Cairo reveal that Olawoyin’s imminent arrival in the Northern African country has sparked a bidding war among clubs in the elite division.

Olawoyin is a known prospect in Egypt having scored a spectacular goal for Rangers against Pyramids in Enugu when both teams clashed in the CAF Confederation Cup group stage. He also provided an assist when Rangers lost to El Masry in Alexandria in a game he also completed a competition high eight dribbles.

It was hinted that ENPPI have been a long term admirer of Olawoyin since his exploits last December but will have to contend with local rivals Smouha and Ismaily FC for the signature of the prized asset who has one international cap for Nigeria’s Super Eagles.
 
In a very recent twist, Pyramids, still smarting from their defeat to Moroccan side Renaissance Sportive de Berkane (RS Berkane) in Sunday’s Total CAF Confederation Cup final have now signified interest in Olawoyin as they look to strengthen their squad for a domestic and continental assault next season.
 
With offers pouring in from North Africa, especially Egypt, it is most definite that Olawoyin will leave Enugu based Rangers International for greener pastures in the land of the Pharaohs.

ACLSports sources further hinted that former Nigerian champions Rangers are now resigned to losing Olawoyin, who was one of their best players last season to one of the Egyptian clubs.
