Zambian international Enock Mwepu (23) has reportedly received an offer to leave Red bull SALZBURG.
According to Austrian publication Salzburg24, the Midfielder has received a serious transfer offer to leave Salzburg this month and was allowed to miss the bulls camp for the friendly they had on Tuesday as he is now in contract talks.
At the start of Salzburg’s training and the first test match under new coach Matthias Jaissle, Mwepu was still involved. In Seekirchen, the Zambian added himself to the scorers list in their 3-1 win against the Slovak first division club Dunajska Streda. The goal celebration last Friday could have been his last.
Mwepu was nowhere near Salzburg’s bench in their 3-0 triumph on Tuesday evening against the Greek champions Olympiacos Piraeus in Kirchdorf.
However, Fc Redbull Salzburg club confirmed to SALZBURG24 on Wednesday that Mwepu now has a specific offer and is therefore no longer present at the training camp in Bramberg.
After a year with the second division FC Liefering and three seasons with Red Bull Salzburg, the 2017 U20 Africa Cup winner and four-time Austrian Bundesliga title holder (plus three ÖFB Cup triumphs) is now set to take on a new challenge.
It is not yet known where he will be headed, but an exit is only a matter of time. According to German media reports, Borussia Dortmund and ex-Redbull Salzburg coach Marco Rose are said to be interested in Mwepu.
Other clubs that have been linked with the Zambian include, Leeds united and RB Leipzig.
