Zulte Waregem is doing well in the Challenger Pro League and is first. Essevee invested heavily in the summer and wants to promote immediately. They were able to experience this firsthand at KV Oostende.
KV Oostende recently looked for reinforcement in a creative way, but not much was possible financially. Sporting director Nils Vanneste certainly did a good job. Opposite The newspapaer he spoke about a failed transfer from the coastal team.
Traoré is doing well at Zulte Waregem
“Zulte Waregem signed a 19-year-old player (Abdoulaye Traoré, ed.) who costs 900,000 euros. We also had contact with his Bulgarian club Plovdiv, but we cannot pay that sum,” Vanneste admits in the newspaper.
The attacker certainly managed to make himself noticed, despite the presence of top players such as Jelle Vossen and Zinho Gano. Traoré, who often plays on the wing, managed to score once and provide three assists in ten matches in the Challenger Pro League. In the Croky Cup the score is two goals in two matches.
Potential top transfer for Essevee
Zulte Waregem seems to have a promising talent in its ranks. The club signed the player until mid-2027. His market value is 750,000 euros according to Transfermarkt, which is strange considering he is performing well and was bought for 900,000 euros.
Zulte Waregem hopes that in the long term it will have a golden boy in its ranks with Traoré. Essevee, like every Belgian club, lives from outgoing transfers and Traoré already offers prospects for the future.
