Reports are out claiming that a quartet of Nigeria’s U17 World Cup-winning squad are set for moves to Europe this winter.
According to the Daily Mail, Kelechi Nwakali, Samuel Chukwueze, David Enogena and Joel Osikel could all be making their homes with top European clubs after signing with leading UK agency Stellar Group.
It is believed that attacking midfielder Nwakali is the most highly rated of the foursome who are being watched by Premier League giants Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City as well as German champions Bayern Munich and French powerhouse Paris Saint-Germain.
Nwakali is being heavily linked with City, where his brother Chidibiere is contracted, but work permit issues have reportedly halted any such move while there are some reports that Chelsea have already shown significant interest.
Striker Chukwueze and midfield pair Enogena and Osikel are also on the radars of the aforementioned clubs and could be on their way to football’s mecca when the January transfer window opens.
