The japanese midfielder was among the players requested by Walter Zenga at Al Nasr, who was also looking at Steaua’s Ovidiu Petre and Timisoara’s Razvan Cocis. “Taka” declined the offer after helding talks with “L’uomo ragno”, proving once again that he’s not putting money ahead of the game. He’s definitely hoping to move to a bigger club in Romania though, with Dinamo in pole position to get his signature, a transfer that has very big chances to go through this summer.
Recently “retired”, the former FIFA agent Daniel Stanciu has already given signs of how important his connections and knowledge could prove for FC Timisoara. Hired in the sporting director position, Stanciu took advantage of the Romania – Israel friendly to convince Omer Golan (27) to join the Viola club in the summer. Golan was in the last six months of his current deal with Lokeren and, after talks with Timisoara’s board and even a trip to see the beautiful city, confirmed that he will be joining the Romanian club at the end of the season. Golan, who was a target for Steaua a couple of years ago, has 36 caps and 9 goals for Israel and spent the last two and a half seasons in Belgium, where he scored 11 goals in 56 appearance.
