HÀ NỘI — Thai League 1 side Nakhon Ratchasima islooking to sign Vietnamese players Nguyễn Anh Đức and Phan Văn Đức after watching their brilliant performances at the ongoing AFF Cup.

The Thai club previously planned to sign Malaysian striker Shahrel Fikri but decided to go after the Vietnamese players and Philippines captain Phil Younghusband.

Striker Nguyễn Anh Đức, 23, has scored three times for Việt Nam in the tournament so far, as well as providing assists for his teammates. He is now captain of three-time champions Becamex Bình Dương.

A screen grab shows news of Nakhon Ratchasima’s interest in Vietnamese players.

Midfielder Phan Văn Đức, 22, has caught the eye with his skillful technique and two goals. He currently plays for Sông Lam Nghệ An.

Both have been key players for Việt Nam in recent tournaments.

Next season, each club in Thai League 1 will be allowed to signed three ASEAN players.

Midfielder Nguyễn Quang Hải of Hà Nội FC previously refused offers from Bangkok Glass and Muangthong United, saying he did not want to play abroad. — VNS
