15 goals in 10 games - so the crazy season record of the Brazilian.

  • The Belgian Club Royal Antwerp is offering 13 million francs for Arthur Cabral.

  • At FC Basel they don’t want the striker to go under 16 million.

  • The transfer window closes on Tuesday evening.

The last day of transfer summer is running. And the deadline day could be launched with a bang: FC Basel is said to have received an offer of CHF 13 million for striker Arthur Cabral. The Belgians at Royal Antwerp are hot for the Brazilians. The FCB, however, demands at least 16 million, reports the “Het Laatste Nieuws”.

For a long time it was said at Basler that there was no concrete offer for the 15-goal man. On Monday evening, when asked about Cabral’s whereabouts, Vice President David Degen said that the striker was gone with the right offer. “A good sports management can sell Cabral and already has one ready, which is perhaps even better,” said Degen in the blue-talk.

Only mini profit for Basel

If the Belgians put their offer up again, Cabral will leave the Super League. Whether 13 or 16 million, the 23-year-old would be the most expensive new purchase in the history of Belgium. Curious: Antwerp has already signed two center forwards this summer. One of them is the Swiss Michael Frey, who leads the top scorer list in Belgium with seven goals.

But FC Basel will only see half of the windfall. In 2020, FCB transferred around CHF 5 million to Brazil for 50 percent of the transfer rights. If you let Cabral pull for 13 million, the profit would be just a stupid 1.5 million. But in Basel you have to depend on it for better or for worse. It should be a long day for the FCB fans.
