German Clubs Rival for Tunisian Star Mohamed Amine Ben Amor
Tunisian playmaker Mohamed Amine Ben Amor is sandwiched between Hoffenheim and Hertha Berlin after both German Bundesliga sides lodged bids to sign him. The 25-year-old is currently out on the peripheries for two weeks after sustaining an abrasion on the thigh but that hasn’t deflected interest from Hertha and Hoffenheim.
A defensive player, Amor is the subject of overtures from clubs abroad with his contract due to run out in June next year.
His local club Etoile Sportive Du Sahel risk losing him on a free transfer should they allow him to see out his contract without a new one being signed.
Talks over improved terms between the player’s representatives and the board have been slow and sides from Europe, notably Bertha, Hoffenheim and Ligue One’s Metz, have made public their willingness to sign the star in the hopes to lure him.
Etoile will be left with no choice but to cash in on him should Amine reject a renewed contract proposal before June 2018. The Sousse-born’s market value was pegged at £990,000 weeks ago but that sum has soared with his price tag now being quoted to be in excess of £1m.
The rise in the player’s worth is understandably the result of the aforesaid outfits bids.
Sahel’s chairman Ridha Charfeddine is coy regarding recent offers coming in his star’s path, and this week, chose to dodge the topic when grilled by local reporters over the player’s future at the club.
Mohammed is capped 24 times by Tunisia and was an invaluable in the Carthage Eagles’ qualification for the World Cup in Russia next year.
