Sadiq played a key role in Almeria’s promotion to LaLiga from the Spanish Segunda Division last season.
“Right now there are three teams that are fighting for him, but if he is sold, it will be at the price that we understand,” El Assy told La Voz de Almeria.
“There are two teams from Spain and one from abroad, but I can’t mention the names of the clubs competing to take Sadiq.”
El Assy however stated that the club will be open to having Sadiq stay around should no acceptable arrive before the end of the transfer window.
“If we get there, we want him, yes,” he added.

“Everything will depend on the negotiations.”
