Almeria and Elche picked up their first points of the campaign with a 1-1 draw on the Spanish East Coast.

Super Eagles striker Umar Sadiq headed the visitors in front early on before Barcelona loanee Alex Collado fired home an instant equaliser.

Alejandro Centelles’ dismissal put Almeria on the back foot but Elche were unable to take advantage.

Villarreal, Real Sociedad and Valencia have been linked with Sadiq during the summer transfer window.

Signing Sadiq would certainly give any club more strength in depth. The Nigerian, 25, has enjoyed a long and well-travelled career despite his relative youth but has really thrived since joining Almeria in the summer of 2020.

He has contributed 42 goals and 19 assists in 83 appearances across all competitions for the Andalusian outfit and earned seven caps for his country.
