Who is Antonio Nusa - Club Brugge talented teenager?

Nusa has been making waves in the Belgian Pro League with his performance

According to reports, Fulham will face competition from Tottenham and Chelsea for the signing of outstanding Club Brugge attacker Antonio Nusa during the January transfer window.

The young striker is currently becoming well-known in Belgium; Fulham in particular has noted that he can play any position on the front line. Though he only inked a new deal earlier than usual that spans until June 2027, other suitors have already entered the race for the 18-year-old.

Additionally, it is said that Brugge is determined to maintain its attacking prowess in the upcoming year, particularly given their current success in both the Belgian Pro League and the Europa League.

But according to a Football Insider source, if Brugge choose to capitalise on the player’s impressive start to the season, they’ll probably want a fee of about £30 million.

Brugge is hoping that the interest shown by Chelsea and Tottenham will lead to an auction for Nusa’s services, thus increasing the cost.

Antonio Nusa’s rise at Club Brugge

This season, Nusa has appeared in 17 games in all contests, contributing assists and two goals.

As a youngster, the attacker made 53 appearances in all and was a key part of his team’s victory in the Belgian Super Cup the previous season.

Nusa, who can play across the centre of the field or on the wings, scored his first goal as a senior for Norway in a friendly match against Jordan back in September. Now, he has four caps for his nation.

In the meantime, it’s no secret that Tottenham and Chelsea are on the lookout for fresh offensive ability, with the former in especially in need of additions following a catastrophic injury problem.

Ivan Perisic is sidelined for the entire time of year, leaving Richarlison, Manor Solomon, Ryan Sessegnon, and James Maddison sidelined for Spurs, who are also interested in Juventus’ Samuel Iling-Junior.
