Victor Obinna's wage demands scare away interested clubs

28 July 2015, 14:10

Lagos - A representative of Victor Obinna has claimed that the striker is attracting interest from clubs in Turkey, France, United Arab Emirates and Italy, but an agreement is far from being reached, with the suitors failing to meet the Nigeria international's wage demands.

''Obinna doesn't lack offers, he is thinking about the money they are offering him. He was well paid in Lokomotiv Moscow,'' said Obinna's unnamed rep to news24.

''Right now nobody is willing to give him that kind of money he earned in Russia. We are still thrashing out terms with the interested clubs.

''He has offers from two Serie A clubs, France, Turkey and a team in Dubai.''

Ahead of a potential move this summer, Victor Obinna has returned to Milan, where he has a house, to begin individual training. The 28-year-old has played for Inter Milan, Chievo Verona, Malaga and West Ham in the past.
