18 December 2015, 14:03

Lagos - News24.com can confirm that Golden Eaglets most sought-after player, Victor Osimhen, and his entourage have arrived in Germany to thrash out a deal with Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg.

The attacker was accompanied on the trip to Lower Saxony by the coach of Ultimate Strikers, Chinedu Ogbenna, Shira Yussuf and his partner, Ariyo Igbayilola, his eldest brother Andrew Osimhen and 36 Lion CEO Liameed Olawale Gafar.

English Premier League side Arsenal were in pole position to land the signature of Osimhen but the offer from Wolfsburg was too good to turn down compared to what was being proposed by the Londoners.

The 16 - year - old and his representatives will be shown around the club's facilities and it is envisaged that he will most likely sign a preliminary contract if he passes a routine medical.

The talented teenager was courted by Italian clubs not limited to Inter Milan and Udinese plus Sporting Lisbon , Anderlecht and an unnamed team based in Saudi Arabia after putting himself in the shop window at the Fifa Under 17 World Cup.

Osimhen etched his name into international football folklore after scoring 10 times at the Fifa U17s and emerging as the second best player of the tournament hosted by Chile.
