La Liga Santander side, Villarreal CF have joined the list of teams expressing interest in Super Eagles’ striker, Umar Sadiq.

Following his scintillating performances which aided UD Almeria's promotion into the Spanish first division last season, Sadiq is being wanted by top european teams.

The 25-year-old has made 76 appearances for the Rojiblancos and scored 38 goals.

The former AS Roma youngster has also drawn interest from Spanish teams, Sevilla and Valencia as well as Portuguese powerhouse Benfica and Eredivisie winners Ajax Amsterdam.

Villarreal on the other hand have received a bid for Arnaut Danjuma, from Premier League club West Ham United and with Sadiq bookmarked as a potential replacement.
