Nigerian Football




Nigerian striker is hoping to team up with some of the best known football icons in the world as he eagerly awaits a likely move to FC Barcelona.

There he has the opportunity of playing in the same team with the likes of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Gerard Piqué among others.

The Catalan club is desperate in need to back up striker since the exit of Munir El Haddadi last week to Sevilla.

The leading 2019 African Cup of Nation scorer, whose Chinese club went on relegation is seeking a better platform possibly in English Premiership or any other top European league.

 Lasr week, the Spanish giants showed interest in former Watford forward as one of the players to be considered for the position.


The Changchun Yatai forward has been retweeting the stories from major news tabloid linking him to the Spanish side thus indicating his wish to join the club should the negotiations go positive.

The Camp Nou giants wants to put the pressure off the front three and perhaps give Luis Suarez a bit of rest meaning whoever comes in will be a fringe player just like El Haddadi did before his departure to Sevilla.

Meanwhile aside the Nigeria striker, FC Barcelona have also narrowed their search to other players in the winter window and they include Fernando Llorente whom the club considered as very good at cameo appearance like he did with Juventus and Tottenham. 

Others are Maxi Gomex, Alvaro Morata, Tonny Sanabria who had made a good show with Sporting Gijon and Real Betis
