KV Mechelen were crying out for a striker during the 2022/2023 season. Summer signing Julien Ngoy season was blighted by injury, meaning the former Eupen striker struggled to get a significant run in the side. Now, according to Voetbalkrant, they are set to bring in another striker from the Pandas this summer. Smail Prevljak recent left the club when his contract expired, and it looks like the Bosnian international will follow Ngoy to Mechelen.
Prevljak has had a poor seasons by his standards. The 27-year-old Bosnian international only managed six goals this season, three less than last year. In 2020/2021 he managed 15 goals in 27 games. While it was two years ago, this may still see other Pro League clubs in need of a striker come looking. With better service than he was offered at Eupen, he may be able to rediscover the form he had previously shown. In Geoffry Hairemans, Mechelen certainly have a player who could provide Prevljak the service he needs.
Mechelen recently missed out on European football when they lost 2-0 to Antwerp in the Belgian cup final last Sunday afternoon.
