Bulgarian club Levski Sofia will try once again to complete a surprising transfer by snapping up Sporting Lisbon's unwanted striker Valeri Bojinov, it has been reported.

Bojinov stirred a scandal last week by shoving a team mate aside to take a vital injury-time penalty – which he missed. He was subsequently expelled from Sporting's first team and his future at Estadio Jose Alvarade is extremely doubtful.

It is believed that Bojinov will be either loaned out until the end of the season or sold, with Turkish side Trabzonspor, Bulgarian champions Litex and Fiorentina named as potential bidders.

Levski tried to sign the striker already in December and made one more attempt after his recent fiasco. The team is in a desperate need of a new striker, as Brazilian forward Zezinho whom they almost signed on Wednesday turned out to be needing surgery.

Bojinov hit recently the front pages of Bulgarian tabloids after deciding to marry in between two matches of the national team, at a time when it was in desperate need of at least one face-saving victory, raising many eye brows.
