President of the Nigerian Football Federation NFF, Amaju Pinnick, has started negotiations with English Premier League club Arsenal over the signing of Victor Osimhen, that’s according to allnigeriasoccer.com .
As many as nine different agents have made contact with representatives of the Golden Boot winner of the 2015 Fifa Under 17 World Cup as regards to a transfer to the Emirates.
But Pinnick and his camp are in the driving seat as the NFF supremo is well connected within the corridors of power at the Gunners.
Indeed, the former Chairman of Delta State Football Association has opened a line of communication with his good pal and Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, instructing him that he should convince the club to acquire Osimhen.
But it is not done and dusted that the 16 – year – old will be heading to Arsenal as Stellar Football Ltd, who represent ex Tottenham Hotspur star Gareth Bale, are already in Nigeria for talks with Ultimate Strikers.
Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool are among the European powerhouses monitoring the transfer situation of Victor Osimhen with keen interest.
