Nigeria international Anthony Okpotu is set to decide his future amidst interest from Asian and African clubs.

The 26-year-old striker had a successful 2019/20 season as he netted 13 goals which earned him the Tunisian Ligue 1 top scorer award.

Okpotu also helped his club US Monastir win their first-ever Tunisian Cup on Sunday as they stunned Esperance 2-0 in the final.

Esperance are reportedly keen to sign the lanky striker, but they are facing competition from Saudi Arabian clubs in Al Etiffeq and Al-Batin FC plus Kuwaiti team Al Kuwait SC.

“It was a good game, both teams play good football and they have quality players,” Okpotu told All Nigeria Soccer.

“We didn’t have special plans to stop Esperance but we played according to the tactics of the coach which we’ve be been doing.

“It is true I finished as the top scorer in the League with 13 goals, I’ll decide where I’ll play next season this week but 80% I’m moving.”

Okpotu has nine months left on his contract with US Monastir having joined the club last year.

He helped Nigeria reach the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) final where they lost to Morocco. (African Football)
