‘AA Gent breaks record for new scoring top striker’

FK Sarajevo’s Renan Oliveira is a much-discussed target of AA Gent, for which it has reportedly already made an official offer.

The Brazilian striker has been praised for his efficiency and effectiveness on the pitch, and his potential transfer is expected to be accompanied by a breaking of the Bosnian Premijer Liga transfer record.

Renan Oliveira as Tarik Tissoudali’s replacement?

AA Gent has a tight selection this season and Hein Vanhaezebrouck has already warned several times of a disaster scenario in January, when the Africa Cup and the Asian Cup would severely thin out the Ghent core. “We can probably cope with it until January, but then things can go incredibly wrong,” said Vanhaezebrouck.

The Buffaloes seem to have been hit the hardest of all clubs in the Jupiler Pro League because the club sees no fewer than four important players leave: Tarik Tissoudali, Tsuyoshi Watanabe, Hong Hyun-seok and Nurio Fortuna.

Vanhaezebrouck had already met with the scouting cell several times to discuss possible reinforcements, but this did not make him much wiser. In addition, there are few financial resources with a loss of 19.2 million euros in the previous financial year.

“Cheap, if necessary rented, additional men are needed,” wrote The last news. A new goalkeeper was high on the wish list and with the arrival of Daniel Schmidt that gap was filled.

In addition, Ghent is also linked to Renan Oliveira, a 26-year-old and quick-scoring striker from FK Sarajevo. Although Laurent Depoitre (35) is back after a ruptured Achilles tendon, this Brazilian target can also be considered the replacement for Tissoudali, who is going to the Africa Cup with Morocco.

Highly paid top striker, but worth every cent of the investment

According to the Bosnian medium Factor AA Gent has reportedly already made an official offer for Renan Oliveira, whose market value is estimated at one million euros according to the specialized website transfer market.com.

The Brazilian striker joined FK Sarajevo at the start of 2023 and has quickly developed into one of the team’s leading players.

This season he has shown his scoring ability with 7 goals in 15 games in the Premijer Liga. SPORT previously emphasized that Renan Oliveira is without a doubt one of the top attackers in the competition.

With his excellent sense of timing in front of goal, he quickly won the hearts of all supporters. Although he reportedly receives a high salary in an already well-paid dressing room, his value for money is considered worth every penny of the investment.

Sarajevo also paid a transfer fee of 170,000 euros for Oliveira last year, making him the second most expensive purchase ever for the Bosnian top club.

Renan Oliveira must break Bosnian transfer record

During the previous summer trade, Renan Oliveira was already linked with a possible departure from FK Sarajevo, but the Bosnian top club has always stood firm and refused to let him go.

However, given its continued strong performance, foreign interest continues to increase, and new offers appear likely to follow in January.

SPORT reports that if a transfer were to take place, it would most likely involve millions of dollars, and possibly even break the Premier League record.

That record is currently held by Gojko Cimirot (ex-Standard), who left Sarajevo for PAOK Saloniki in 2015 for an amount of 1.68 million euros.

Not a ‘typical’ Brazilian: efficient and effective striker

Renan Oliveira profiles himself as a true goal machine for FK Sarajevo, or like the Bosnian newspaper Dnevni Avaz it put it, a “ruthless goalscorer.”

Although he does not display the typical Brazilian style with much flair, technique or dribbling, he stands out as a striker who needs few opportunities to score, provides depth and is always ready to support his teammates.

This season, Oliveira is recording an impressive average of 0.51 goals per 90 minutes and is converting an average of 24% of his goal chances into effective goals.

It is also striking that with 7 goals he scores more than expected based on his expected goals (4.56). This underlines his efficiency and effectiveness on the field.
