Nigerian wonder-kid linked with move to Rangers

The Gers already have four Nigerians on their roster, but they are looking to add one more to give them some bite in attack

Scottish Premiership champions Rangers have been linked with a move for Nigerian youngster Akinkunmi Amoo.

The Gers already have four Nigerians on their books- Joe Aribo, Leon Balogun, Calvin Bassey, and Nnamdi Ofoborh, but manager Giovanni Van Bronckhorst wants to add some extra firepower up front.

And a move for Amoo could be in the works. The former Nigeria Under-17 star has been excellent for Swedish side Hammarby since he joined in the summer of 2020. The 19-year-old has quick feet and is a good dribbler.

Last season, Amoo was the second best young player in the Allsvenskan. He scored nine goals and assisted five in 29 appearances, helping the Bajen to a fifth-place finish.

According to givemesport, Amoo is one of three targets the Gers are looking to add to the team.

Amoo was part of the Nigeria U-17 squad, who were was dumped out of the 2019 U-17 World Cup in the round of 16.
