7th tier player Muhammadu Faal is reportedly wanted by six EFL clubs after his stunning goalscoring form in recent seasons.
The 24 year old Enfield Town striker has turned heads for clubs in the Championship and League One, smashing 14 goals in 18 games and that’s just in the league.
He’s currently playing in the Isthmian League Premier Division since rejoining from Bolton Wanderers in the summer.
But now Barnsley, Millwall, Middlesbrough, Ipswich Town, Sheffield Wednesday, and Sunderland have scouted him, delighted at what he has to offer.
Faal has spent the majority of his career at non league level however secured a move to the EFL with Bolton in January 2020 after scoring 24 goals in 25 appearances for Enfield in the first half of the 2019/20 campaign.
Things didn’t exactly go to plan at the Trotters, so returned to the north London outfit, and was instantly back to his best with yet another stunning start to the season.
With a host of clubs eyeing him up in January, he may look set to earn him another chance in the Football League.
His goals have helped Enfield to climb to third in the Isthmian League Premier Division – the seventh tier of the English football pyramid – with games in hand over the teams above them.
