Simultaneously, the club continues to bolster its attacking force with the recent induction of Cyriel Dessers, Sam Lammers and Abdallah Sima. Proving their strength, Nigeria’s Dessers and Holland’s Lammers migrate from Italy’s Cremonese and Atalanta, while Senegal’s Sima makes a leap from Brighton.
