Eyefootball.com reported that Derby County is interested in signing Persija Jakarta’s forward Bambang Pamungkas for next season in the Championship Division. The site wrote that Paul Jewell wants to add an experienced attacker to play alongside Emannuel Villa, the Argentinian forward. Derby County will prepare around 300,000 pounds (around 5.4 billions rupiah) for the 27 years old Indonesian international striker.
Bambang Pamungkas currently plays for Persija Jakarta, and has played most of his career in the club. Assistant Manager of Persija, M. Nigara, stated to the media that the club will ask around 15 billions rupiah (around 800,000 pounds) for the transfer fee.
Pamungkas has more than 40 caps for Indonesia bagging more than 20 goals.
