Transfer news: Premier League and Championship clubs to battle for Leyton Orient ace Macauley Bonne who will face Mohamed Salah at AFCON

The Zimbabwe international, 23, is set to go head-to-head with Liverpool’s Egyptian forward Mohamed Salah at the Africa Cup of Nations following a fine campaign in the National League.

Bonne hit 20 goals in the league as The O’s won the division and promotion to League Two sparking major interest in his services from around the country.

Signed in 2017 from Colchester United, the player is now being targeted by Charlton Athletic, Sunderland, Sheffield Wednesday and Middlesbrough, while Sheffield United and Leicester City are also interested.

The clubs have been buoyed by the news Bonne has a £200,000 release clause, which will allow them to snap up the talented forward on the cheap.

Leyton Orient are believed to have offered their star striker significantly improved terms to counter the incoming offers.
