Tasnim – Nigerian striker Salisu Abdullahi "Alhaji" Gero has reportedly traveled to Tehran to negotiate with Iran’s Esteghlal football team.
After Mame Thiam’s departure, the Blues are going to strengthen their frontline.
Alhaji Gero, 24, currently plays in Östersunds in the Allsvenskan, Sweden’s top flight.
He is teammate of Iran international winger Saman Ghoddos.
Gero made his debut for the Nigeria national under-20 football team at the eight-nation tournament in South Africa.
Esteghlal has recently signed contracts with Iraqi attacking midfielder Humam Tariq Faraj Naoush and German midfielder Markus Neumayr.
