Esteghlal Nigerian Striker Gero on Nassaji’s Radar
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Nigerian forward of Iran’s Esteghlal football team has been reportedly linked with a move to Nassaji Mazandaran.
Gero moved to the Iran Professional League side Esteghlal from Ostersunds on a three-year contract in August after successful medicals but failed to meet the expectations.
The 24-year-old attacker replaced Mame Baba Thiam who scored 12 goals in 13 matches for Esteghlal but he has netted just one goal in nine matches so far.
Nassaji, headed by Javad Nekounam, is reportedly eying Gero in the January transfer window.
The Ghaemshahr-based football team sits ninth in the league, 14 points adrift of leader Sepahan.
