Zakri has been in fine form for ASEC Mimosas of late, putting in a number of impressive performances that have led to over 10 clubs showing an interest in bringing him on board.
While Sundowns are one of the 25-year-old’s many suitors, they are not a team that has submitted a formal offer, putting them behind other members of the chasing pack.
The Siya crew got in touch with the Ivorian’s agent, Faustino Mukandila, who said that ASEC do now have offers on the table from clubs, and that Sundowns aren’t one of them.
Mukandila explained in this week’s issue of Soccer Laduma, “It’s difficult to talk about your own player, but Yan is a top boy and player. If he plays with confidence the sky is the limit for him because he’s a good leader, doesn't speak too much and does it all on the pitch.
“If Mamelodi (Sundowns) are serious, we are ready to listen to them at anytime, but ASEC have concrete offers on the table now, and not from them.”
Meanwhile, according to reports in Egypt, Zamalek are leading the race for the forward having upped their efforts to land him in the last 48 hours.
