Little known Nigeria international Blessing Eleke continues his European sojourn on Wednesday with a move to Belgium Jupiler League side Beerschot, OJB Sport reports.
Eleke started his professional career with Olimpija Ljubljana in January 2016 and made his debut against Zavrč, Olimpija.
The name of the Nigerian striker may still ring a bell for the Belgian football fan. In January 2019, Anderlecht tried to bring him in and the club even made an offer of no less than five million euros – a loan of one million with a purchase option of four million – but that was nevertheless refused by his Swiss club FC Luzern.
Eleke, who is still under contract in Lucerne for two years, is leaving the Swiss first division Beerschot on a 3 year deal.
In August 2017, Eleke transferred to Israeli Premier League club Ashdod.
In July 2018, Eleke signed a four-year contract with Swiss Super League club FC Luzern for a reported fee of approximately 1 million Swiss francs.
After being cleared to play for Luzern, he managed to score on his debut, helping his club get past Lugano 4–2.
In his two years at Lucerne, he played 72 games, scoring 22 times and delivering seven assists.
