Arsenal are the frontrunners to sign Nigeria U17 striker Victor Osimhen. Arsenal have faced off competition from local rivals Tottenham and they are the favourites to sign the player according to the player’s agent.
“We’ve had many offers for Victor,” said Gaffar Liameed, player’s agent. “But we’ve narrowed it down to Arsenal and Wolfsburg.”
The 16-year old helped Nigeria won U-17 World Cup last year and he is one of the hottest prospects in his age group at the moment.
Sun reports that the player has already visited Wolfsburg training centre, but wants to sign for the Gunners.
He has scored ten goals in seven games for Nigeria U17s.
