The 2021 NBA champion with the Milwaukee Bucks, Giannis Antetokounmpo has taken to his social media to reveal his desire to play in the Saudi Pro League, one of the most-talked professional sporting leagues in recent times. After showcasing his skills with the ball on July 14, Friday, the 28-year-old put out a question on Twitter, asking whether the league needs a new striker or not.

The Saudi Pro League is making head waves in the world of football (soccer), after one of their clubs, Al-Nassr signed Cristiano Ronaldo in January, for a whopping deal of $215 million a year. Since then, a lot of top-tier talent has gone to the Middle Eastern country to play the sport, including the likes of Karim Benzema, N’Golo Kante, Roberto Firmino, Ruben Neves, and Kalidou Koulibaly among others.

A few days ago, Steven Gerrard, the Liverpool club legend, agreed to manage the club Al-Ettifaq in the league for the 2023-24 season.
