The race to sign UD Almeria striker Sadiq Umar is getting keener with another Spanish La Liga side joining the chase for the Nigerian international's signature.

Spanish outfit, Getafe are the latest club to join in the race to sign the 25-year-old from Almeria.

Spanish publication, Estadio Deportivo reports that Getafe have submitted a €20m offer for the ex-Roma forward.

“Getafe CF’s interest has jumped in by surprise in recent hours. They already did it a long time ago but now in Indálico Sound, they have indicated that the Azulón team have made an offer of €20m to UD Almería for the Nigerian,” the club wrote as quoted by The PUNCH Sports Extra.

Getafe have become the latest club to join Sevilla and Villarreal as La Liga outfits who have shown interest in the Super Eagles forward.

The 25-year-old has also been linked with a move to Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund.

Sadiq has become Almeria's talisman since joining the club from Partizan two seasons ago.

He scored 18 goals and provided 12 assists to help the Andalusians secure promotion to the Spanish top flight last season.
