Bidyashagar, A hot Commodity in the Indian market for ISL Clubs:

These prolific performance by Bidyashagar has definitely grabbed the attention of ISL teams. It would be interesting to see which team would be able to secure Bidyashagar as their future asset. According to my opinion, Bidyashagar should play for Chennaiyin FC. As the clearly lacking a player with quality finishing after Valskis left for Jamshedpur.

Kerala Blasters and East Bengal can also show interest in the youngster as clubs have sustained huge losses due to ghost stadiums and affording a Foreign Striker on high wages is non-sensical for lower-half clubs. I-League is also a old venue of recruitment for NorthEast United, they could well take a gamble on the youngster.
