Reports suggest that Blackpool are closing in on the signing of Osman Sow from Swedish side Syrianska FC.

The 23 year old striker joined Syrianska from FC Dacia Chişinău May 18th 2013, but the club are already resigned to losing him after an approach by a Championship club thought to be Blackpool, as they believe that they can not match any offers from championship teams.

Sporting director Jan Girgo told Swedish football media ‘It looks like Osman will leave us.’
‘We would like to keep him, but I can understand that it is difficult to reject a lucrative offer from there.’
‘There is still a chance, but it is not likely that he will stay with us.’

Since starting his professional career in 2010, Sow as scored 22 goals in 63 appearances over 4 clubs.
