A single tweet from TM Geruchute yesternight sent a devil-dust of noise around social media as Enock Mwepu’s 24 million Euros to move to the premier league got uncovered.
According to the tweet, the 22-year Zambian midfield maestro is set for his medicals at Brighton Abiol this afternoon in a move that has cast a spectrum of mixed feelings across the Zambian football landscape.
Enock Mwepu who was arguably the best Central midfielder in Austria last season as he made the Austrian team of the season was rumored to be in German negotiating a contract with Borussia Dortmund but in the twist of fate, he is set to join his countryman Patson Daka in the Premier League.
It is an exciting development of significant progress as the premier league will have two Zambians for the first time ever. On the other hand, the move comes with some fragments of desperation from his agents under somewhat pressure to impress.
Brighton Boasts of one of the best central midfielders in the premier league in Bissouma and Enock Mwepu will need to give out his arm to push the talented Cameroonian off his territory.
Brighton also cast a signal of impatience and zero tolerance when they wasted Percy Tau to nothingness in the previous season. The South African only featured on four occasions for Brighton starting one match before they announced that he was a liability at the end of the season.
Contrary to Percy Tau However, Enock Mwepu is not only versatile but technically gifted with footwork, drive, and killer venom of passing accuracy.
He captained Redbull Salzburg in their first preseason match against Olympiacos where he scored the final goal as Salzburg beat tje Greek Side 3-0. It was the last time Mwepu was seen in Salzburg colors as he disappeared from radar.
