Raja Casablanca make US$1 million offer for Zim striker


Zimbabwean striker Prince Dube is fast becoming a popular figure in East Africa where he’s been absolutely fantastic for Tanzanian side, Azam.

But while he only signed for the club a couple of months ago, reports suggest he could soon be on his way out and heading to North Africa, where Morocco’s Raja Casablanca – this year’s CAF Champions League semifinalists – are thought to be in hot pursuit of the 23-year-old.

Raja have reportedly made an offer of US$1 million for Dube and unsurpisingly considering he’s netted 20 goals in his last 21 competitive games for club and country.

According to Tanzania’s Citizen, The Zimbabwean striker has been on fire since arriving in Tanzania in August, scoring seven goals in all the seven matches, including friendlies, he has played in. He was also named Tanzania Premier League’s Player of the Month in September.

Dube’s performances have attracted Raja’s interest, but Azam are unlikely to accept the offer.

“Yes, there is interest from Raja Casablanca, and some crazy figures are being talked about, but it’s unlikely to happen because Azam would rather have Prince completing this season playing for them,” a source told the Herald.

“A million United States dollars is good money, anywhere in the world, but Azam are not desperate for money right now and, given a choice between winning the league, and getting a million dollars, the club’s owners will go for the league.

“That is where things get complicated for this deal to go through, right now, because the Tanzanian club want their player to, at least, complete the season in their team.”
