The Flying Antelopes maybe forced to drop three players after their former clubs insisted on high transfer feesEnugu Rangers may be forced to drop three players who are currently training with the team ahead of next season. The players are Super Eagles goalkeeper, Chigozie Agbim, Sunday Mba and Lazarus Chukwu.
These players who appeared for Wolves last season have been training with the Flying Antelopes, but may have to return to Warri because the two clubs cannot seem to agree on the transfer fees.
Goal.com learnt that Rangers have been asked to pay exhorbitant fees on the three players.
Wolves have told Rangers that they will have to pay N15 million for Agbim, N10 million for Mba and N7 million for Chukwu. With no fees agreed on the players, the three may have to return to Warri since Rangers have said they cannot afford the high transfer fees placed on the players.
Foster Chime, Rangers media officer, told Goal.com in Lagos that the team is still undecided on whether they can pay for the three players.
"These boys have been training with us and we need them for the Caf Champions League and the Nigeria Premier League.
"But I must confess that the transfer fees on the three players is too high and we may not able to afford it.
"Like I said, we need the players and maybe we will dialogue with Warri Wolves on the best way to go about the transfer fees.
"The three players fit into our plans of what we want to achieve next season and we hope Warri Wolves will give us the players at a price that is reasonable," Chime added.
Rangers will represent Nigeria in the Caf Champions League courtesy of coming second in the Nigeria Premier League last season behind Kano Pillars.
