Arsenal are one of three Premier League clubs keeping an eye on Feirense winger Oghenekaro Etebo, according to A Bola.

The Nigerian international came to the attention of a lot of clubs after his performance at the 2016 Olympic Games. He became the first player to score four goals in one match during the football tournament, helping Nigeria to a 5-4 win over Japan.

In January this year, the Metro reported that the Gunners had scouted the player in Feirense’s 1-1 draw against Porto, and it seems that interest in the player is still very much there, although it looks as though Leicester City and Manchester United have now entered the fray for the Nigerian.

Etebo moved from Warri Wolves FC to Feirense 18 months ago, and it must be said he has yet to make a massive impact in Portugal. So far, he has made 32 appearances for the Portuguese side, scoring five goals and providing five assists.
