The Greek AEK wants to bring a reinforcement in the attack, and the priority is the BH national team player Vedad Ibisevic.The injury of the Algerian national team player and striker of AEK Rafik Djebbour forced the sports director of the Greek club Branko Milovanovic to seek for an adequate replacement, and the BH national team player and the current member of the Bundesliga club Stuttgart Vedad Ibisevic emerged as an ideal solution.Milovanovic is interested in several players, but he would be satisfied the most if he could manage to realize the transfer of Ibisevic, who proved himself in the German Bundesliga. Ibisevic played 143 matches for Hoffenheim and scored 48 goals, while he performed in 86 matches for Stuttgart and recorded 33 goals. Moreover, in his favourite shirt – the one of the national team of B&H – the popular Vedo played 64 matches in which he scored 24 goals.Ibisevic is under contract with Stuttgart until June 30th 2017, and if AEK does not manage to buy the player the club would be satisfied with borrowing as well.Ibisevic is 31 years old, and his market value is estimated to two million EUR.(Source: klix.ba/ photo tacno)
