Arsenal are leading the chase for Nigerian starlet Lateef Omidiji Jr.
Manchester City, Chelsea, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Ajax are all thought to be interested in the 13-year-old.
However, according to All Nigeria Soccer, it’s Arsenal who are set to snap up the teenager when he becomes eligible to sign a deal. It’s claimed the Gunners have agreed a plan for Omidiji Jr. to train with their youth academy every summer.
Currently, the USA-born youngster attends Sparta Rotterdam’s academy, and Nigeria’s Under-15 coach Danladi Nasidi told Goal last year that Omidiji Jr. has the potential to become a top player for the future:
“He has speed, focus, the technique is so good, the tactical approach is fine and he has the physical ability.
“These things combine to make a good footballer.”
