A couple of English Premier League clubs have sent their scouts to Chile to run the rule over the top stars in the Golden Eaglets fold, allnigeriasoccer.com reports.
It is confirmed that representatives of Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool will be in the stands on Saturday when the Nigeria Under – 17s clash with their United States counterparts at the Estadio Nacional Julio Martínez Prádanos in Santiago.
The players that are on the radar of the English Premier League trio are skipper Kelechi Nwakali ( ASJ Academy), Funsho Bamgboye (Aspire Academy), Victor Osimhen (Ultimate Strikers) and Joel Osikel ( Young Eleven FC).
Prior to the tournament in Chile, Kelechi Nwakali had flirted with Manchester City, with the Citizens suits inviting him to England and he was given a tour of the club’s training facilities.
Kelechi Iheanacho, Chidiebere Nwakali and Musa Yahaya were snapped up by English clubs after the 2013 FIFA U17s.
