The 17-year-old striker will continue training with the youth team of the Primeira Liga power house until he is 18 in order to sign professional terms in the next summer transfer market.
Before the Nigeria youth international, Chidera’s agent agreed a pre-contract with Porto, Roma were the only Italian club that explored the possibility of signing him from River Lane Academy.
”It is not true that Chidera Ezeh is wanted by Roma, Lazio, Sampdoria and Sporting Lisbon,” Babawo Mohammed, the bonafide agent of Ezeh, told SL10.ng.
”After the Under 17 World Cup, we had offers from Racing Genk, Grasshoppers, Olympiakos, Red Bull, Salzburg and Roma but we picked Porto because he will develop there.
”He has already signed a pre – contract with Porto, he doesn’t want to play for any other team.
”He usually trains with their Under 19 team, sometimes with the main team and B team.”
Chidera Ezeh could train with Nigeria’s Under 20 squad, the Flying Eagles, as from next month, subject to him receiving green light from Porto.
