Al Hilal Saudi monitoring Anthony Nwakaeme's contract situation

Al Hilal are reportedly keeping an eye on Anthony Nwakaeme's Trabzonspor contract situation and could make a move for him this summer.

The Asian champions already have Odion Ighalo, but they could be trying to create a Nigerian combo in attack. 

At Trabzonspor, Nwakaeme has entrenched his reputation. The 33-year old has been at the club for four years, and is currently enjoying his best season yet.

The former Hapoel Beer Sheva star has 11 goals and ten assists for the Black Sea Storm, who recently won their first league title in 38 years.

His time at Trabzon, however, appears to be drawing to a close, as he has declined to extend his contract, which expires at the end of the season.

Nwakaeme is requesting higher salary at the end of his career, but Trabzonspor is unwilling to give up and risk losing him this summer.

Al Hilal is keeping an eye on his status, according to Ajansspor, and could step in if his contract with the Turkish Champions-elect expires.

If Nwakaeme joins the Saudi Arabian team, he will join compatriot Odion Ighalo, who has been on fire since leaving Al Shabab in January. In 14 games with Al Hilal, the former Watford striker has scored 12 goals.
