Algerian striker Baghdad Bounedjah has admitted to plenty of interest in his services, but the goal-machine says he is happy to stay at Qatari side Al Sadd, where he has an incredible scoring record.
The 27-year-old was part of the Algeria side that lifted the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations trophy, scoring the decisive goal in the final, and has continued his red-hot form into this season.
He has scored a remarkable 107 goals in 89 appearances for Al Sadd since joining from Tunisian side Etoile du Sahel in 2016, including 39 in 22 league appearances last season.
While the Qatari league may be of a lessor standard, it has made plenty sit up and take notice, though Bounedjah says he is happy where he is.
“Yes, I have offers, but I feel very good at Al Sadd,” he told Al-Watan. “I do not know what will happen in the future, but I can assure you that I am happy at my current club.”
French Ligue 1 side Marseille have been linked with him in the recent past, as well as English Championship side Leeds United.
Bounedjah also scored in Algeria’s 3-0 victory over Colombia in their last international in October.
