Black Stars defender, Alexander Djiku is courting interest from some European clubs from the Spanish and French leagues.

Get French Football News reports that La Liga side Real Betis are looking for a defender to bolster their team and the Ghanaian is a perfect candidate, according to French newspaper L’Équipe.

However, the report says that Betis will have to sell some players before making an approach for the RC Strasbourg player which opens the slot for French side Rennes to swoop for Djiku.

Rennes just completed a move for fellow Ghanaian Kamaldeen Sulemana earlier in the month and will hope this bodes well for them in acquiring Djiku.
