Spanish La Liga side Real Betis showing keen interest and passed up the opportunity to sign 2015 U17 World Cup-winning center back Lukman Zakari on a permanent deal.

The defender Lukman Zakari had strings of impressive performance at Latvian club FK Metta which has really helped his anticipated transfer.

For a central defender, no booking in fifteen appearances for his club in Latvia last summer, he went the distance is unheard of, and proves he is a very disciplined player and knows when to time his tackles accurately.

Excluding performance related variables, there was an option to buy set at one hundred and fifty thousand euros only inserted into the deal taking Zakari to the Andalusian outfit from FK Metta last summer.

The confirmation of Zakari's transfer to Real Betis was held up for several months due to difficulties encountered in obtaining a work permit.

Just when everything seemed to be okay, the coronavirus pandemic put a stop to footballing activities in Spain, and he is departing Betis without making his competitive debut.

Real Betis chiefs admitted during Zakari's exit interview that he was unlucky at the club and they will continue to monitor his development with a view to a future swoop for his signature.

The 21-year-old is believed to be on the radar of Israeli and Turkish clubs in the summer transfer window but there's nothing concrete yet.

Under the tutelage of ex-Barcelona winger Emmanuel Amuneke, Zakari started every single game as the Golden Eaglets won the U17 World Cup four years ago in Chile alongside Victor Osimhen of Napoli and Samuel Chukwueze of Villareal CF.
