KV Mechelen has finally secured its dream transfer. Islam Slimani is officially a Kakker and is therefore using the Transfer Deadline Day well for the people of Mechelen. We know the attacker from RSC Anderlecht.
KV Mechelen was looking for an extra attacker due to the injury of Norman Bassette. A few days ago, the name Islam Slimani came up for the first time at De Kakkers. And Besnik Hasi was looking forward to the attacker’s arrival.
“If we can sign Slimani, we will get someone who knows what it is like to make war at the front. He also has a nose for goals and can keep track of a ball. These are qualities that we have been missing lately,” he said at his press conference this midweek.
According to some, the experienced attacker is against his age, but of course he brings a lot of experience. He was a crowd favorite at RSC Anderlecht, now he should become the same at Mechelen under Besnik Hasi.
Malinwa wants to play himself to final safety as quickly as possible in the coming match days and is counting on the immediately available Slimani to do so. The former purple and white player comes over from Brazilian Coritiba. He still had a contract there until the end of 2024.
