Osimhen’s agent claims Arsenal interest

26 November 2015, 08:48

Abuja - Victor Osimhen’s agent, Shira Yusuf, has claimed English Premier League giants, Arsenal have shown concrete interest in signing the 16-year old.

The lanky striker finished as top scorer at the last FIFA U17 World Cup in Chile and is also now the highest goal scorer in the history of the competition with ten goals, and has been linked with several top European sides ever since.

He was reported to have agreed a deal with Tottenham Hotspur shortly after the tournament, but his agent claims only Arsenal have shown any concrete interest in him.

"We have not seen offers from the other clubs and our partners have been talking to them but only Arsenal have shown interest and even Pinnick (NFF President) talked to them," Yusuf claimed.

Speaking further, Yusuf admitted the player is generating interest from several clubs especially from the English Premier League, but insists only Arsenal have shown any concrete interest.

"Of all the clubs that want him in the English Premier League, it is only Arsenal that has shown any (real) interest."

The gangling striker first shot to prominence during the CAF U17 championship in Niger Republic earlier in the year, where he scored 4 goals, before going on to score 10 at the U17 World Cup.
