Edon Zhegrova (21) recently broke up with his advisor and is now represented by a Swiss agency. It is the ESHA GmbH around Erdin Shaqiri. This has given the FCB over CHF 50 million with transfers from Shaqiri (to Bavaria), Embolo (Schalke) and Ajeti (West Ham), but in terms of Zhegrova it has another goal for once: its clients at FC under all circumstances To keep Basel.
The super dribbler feels at home on the knee, has developed very well in the current season and has made a difference on the pitch one time or another. His appearance in the 3-0 win against YB in December, when he single-handedly took apart the master, is unforgettable.
At that time, the Basler would have drawn the purchase option for the left foot. Then Corona came and coughed the deal off the table. The Bebbi should have put 3.5 million francs for Zhegrova. The FCB, however, considered this too much and refused. Also in the hope that the virus will swirl through the player market and that Zhegrova will be even cheaper in the end.
However, this hope now does not appear to be fulfilled. From the environment of the KRC Genk it can be heard that there are offers of over 5 million for Zhegrova. Among others, Ligue 1 clubs are said to be interested in the winger. The 21-year-old is expected back on the club site on Wednesday, and his loan agreement with Basel expired on Tuesday.
Will the Kosovar international, currently injured at the ankle, appear? Or is he doing what he did when he moved to Basel? Force transfer to FCB? Back in February 2019, Zhegrova refused to appear in training at Genk. Philippe Clement, the coach at the time, found clear words: “It’s a shame for everyone. Some young players are very impatient. Unfortunately, Edon belongs to this category. » They would have liked to continue working with Zhegrova, «but if you don’t get into training like Edon, you will let the team down. There is no place for players who are not here with their hearts. »
So far, Zhegrova has not been noticed in Basel by such negative behavior. On the contrary. That is also why one would like to see him continue in the joggeli.
