The Fifa U17 World Cup, top scorer who broke the tournament all top scoring record and has been linked with moves to some of Europe’s top clubs such as Arsenal, Wolfsburg and Anderlect. He has recently been named Africa’s best young player in an award ceremony earlier this week and that comes from his heroics in that Fifa U17 World Cup tournament. A powerful and pacy centre forward who uses his athleticism and intelligent movement to get him loads of goals. This Nigerian goal machine has all the attributes to become top scorer in one of Europe’s top leagues. But, a word of warning for the youngster, players like Stanley Okoro and Macauley Chrisantus were tipped for big things after impressive youth tournaments outings and now found themselves on the fringes of some lesser known European clubs.
