Ejuke brings excitement to champions of Belgium Antwerp

Updated: Aug 7, 2023

Calvin Stengs (24) was the transfer priority of Antwerp in this summer window. At the end of July, Marc Overmars reached an agreement with OGC Nice for a definitive transfer of the Dutch forward worth six Million Euros, with bonuses as well as a significant resale percentage.

Antwerp had even made an extra financial effort to convince Stengs to sign for the club, and a four-year contract was waiting for him.

Despite these great efforts, Stengs eventually opted for a transfer to Feyenoord, where he will earn an annual net salary of 1.25 million Euros, making him the best-paid player in that team.

Overmars spent months intensively working on the Calvin Stengs file, but he also had to stick to his budget.

“And if it doesn’t work out, we will move on,” Antwerp Director of Football told Het Nieuwsblad during the close season.

Barely four days after Stengs transfer to Feyenoord was officially completed, Antwerp switched quickly with the arrival of Chidera Ejuke (25).

The eight-time Nigerian international is very versatile offensively, because he can play in all positions in the attack.

By the way, Antwerp did not pay a transfer fee for Ejuke, because the Russian war in Ukraine meant that he could leave CSKA Moscow for free.
