    Wait o.. These whitemen may be seeing through lenses that we blacks cannot see. Why not Etebo, iwobi or Aribo with vast experience at club and international level. Is this boy better than the aforementioned players. How about onyekachi that also move to Brenford from midjiland FC. Honestly I will have loved an already established SE player to move to AC Milan instead of this green horn. Be that as it may. I shall be very happy if the deal comes to pass cos I know the boy will be invited to SE if the deal works. But is he more talented than Ndidi, Etebo, Iwobi Aribo or onyekachi? Time will tell

      You haven’t watched the guy play

      Oyibo do not do knee jerk decisions. They must have done their home work. That he is relatively unknown does not discount his quality. Who knew aribo when he played at the championship? Who knew Martinelli when he joined arsenal? Ngolo kante was unknown before his sojourn to the epl. I hope the rumours are true.

      If he becomes a mainstay for Milan then he will waltz into the SE team.

    I have seen a story about Milan’s interest since last week. And now this week, a fresh report of negotiations starting today is now on the news. Well, as a starving Nigerian football fan who lacks a Nigerian player playing in a top European club, I can only wish and pray that this will not end up like the previous stories of interest on Dennis Emmanuel, Sadiq and even Onuachu who are always on the move but arrives at no where.

    May this story be a different story.

  • Great news for the young lads, I hope the deal is sealed this summer. That would boost his chances of making the super eagles team, especially if he performs well with the Serie A giants.

    Meanwhile, why is Onuachu not getting any suitor? The guy is a proven goalscorer.
    As for Taiwo Awoniyi’s move to Nottingham Forest, I hope things work out for him because I expect Steve Cooper to rely on Taiwo Awoniyi for goals this season

    Some Super Eagles players do not choose a top clubs to join them inspite of their talent just like Etebo, Awaziem, Aina, Iwobi, Ndidi, Lookman, Ahmed Musa, Moffi, Collins, Uzoho, they like to join weak clubs like Watford,Omonia Nicosia, Stock City , Torino, Fatih Karamagumruk, Lorient, Cardiff, Hijduk Split, Atalanta than to join a big clubs which play in UEFA , I think in this era SE do not join big clubs becuase I think their clubs chairmen hinder their joining to a big clubs; SE players are modest, obedient, talented ، cute and galen with their teammates so with this causes their clubs can’t let them go out from their clubs; other cause their agent are harpies by contacting with a club which pay a high commision and I think small and weak clubs pay a high one to an agent than to pay for a player , but big clubs haven’t this conduct. SE players can join a big clubs in Europe this depends on their will and their desire to develop their technical and tactical traits; Onyedika and Sadiq Umar with the new boy Francis Daniel who contracted with great club Bayern Munichen they will be begining of SE to join a big clubs; I would like Moffi to join Lyon or Monaco, Ahmed Musa to join Fenerbache or Galatasaray, Etebo to join Arsenal, Valencia , Dortmund, Uzoho to join Dortmund, Ajax, Eindhoven , Marsielle, Ndidi to join Real Madrid, PSG, Atletico Madrid, Manchester United, Iwobi to join Manchester United, Barcelona, Atletico, Onuachu to join Seville , lyon, and so on. IF SE players join a big clubs, they will benefit technically and tactically then they will have a championship soul which can put it in Nigetian national team.

  • AC Milan are know for getting unknown, struggling or Average players at cheaper rate and turn them to Big name (at least more than average) in recent time.e.g, Kaka wasn’t really known at the 2002 world cup until he got to AC Milan, same for Shevchenko when he was at may be Dynamo Kiev, Zlatan and giroud were already struggling before AC called them up, same for Tomori that is now one of the best in Italy. I don’t expect AC Milan to go for Onyeka, Etebo because of their higher Market value from premiership compare to Onyedika and I’m sure there won’t be difference in his performance compare to those two.
    It’s a good news for Nigeria especially at this particular time we are struggling to get a decent defensive midfielder. Ndidi is an injury prone, Etebo to me has no club, Onyeka is seriously warming bench at Brentford since late last season, Bonke is not convincing, Michael just went to one useless club that I don’t even know the name from bologna, Shehu is clubless, Nwakali is not super Eagles material (truth be told) etc so. I see this as a good omen for Nigeria. I pray this works.

    Ac Milan are shopping for a defensive midfielders to replace the Ivorian Frank Kessie who moved to Barcelona. This will be a good move if it pulls through for Onyedika

  • Elijah samson 2 years ago

    @Hassan Tia. You said they should go to top clubs. Believe me, they actually want these top clubs you mentioned but the question you should ask yourself now is do these top clubs you mentioned want them? I know you are a man. Assuming you see a lady and you like her to the point you want to make her your wife and she does not want you, will you go to her father’s house to present bride price? You sounded as if these top clubs chase them but the players rejected the offers.

      The thing tire person o. Nigerian players should go to top clubs. Is it that easy???

  • Golden Child 2 years ago

    I just watched his clips and i am left scratching my head as to how this guy is not in the super eagles team. This guy and Alhassan Yusuf are the future of the eagles midfield. Etebo, though a good servant must be eased out of the team (If stoke city a championship team can release him then it just shows his level).

    When I compare onyedika’s game to onyeka, i think onyedika has a higher ceiling than frank. His passing range, his mobility, his ability to win the ball standing up and not to mention his strength. Ndidi is clear of them all though.

    A midfield of Ndidi, Iwobi,Aribo, Onyedika, Ebiowei and Yusuff is the way to go.

    But this GUY look a BIT like POGBA o..

    Aribo can play in the middle, but for Nigeria, he will do better upfront or on the wings. He has been underwhelming in the midfield in Nigeria colors for a reason. He is not at home there. Based on his performance in multiple matches especially against African opposition, we just have to call it as it is.
    Regarding Malcolm, he is a pacy, skillful forward/winger. Perhaps he could be converted into a midfielder, but for now, he plays mostly as a winger.
    As Golden Child mentioned, the main midfield guys are Ndidi and Iwobi. Onyedika, Yusuf, Abdulrazaq Ishaq the Anderlecht midfield youngster are names I would add to that list. Then I’m looking at the U20 lad Daniel Daga with much interest. That lad if properly handled will be a huge asset to the SE in the nearest future.
    Finally, Etebo showed some flashes in the Sao Tome game that make me feel he still has more to give.
    The Sao Tome that we thrashed 10 nil gave teams like Cameroon and SA a run for their money. Nigeria’s dominance on the day was largely due to the midfield performance, to which Etebo largely contributed. Why he’s struggling at club level is a story for another day.
    To remain relevant in the SE, he needs to find himself a decent club and play regularly.

    I love that Kinsley Michael.. Very good midfielder but very unfortunate with injuries when he was about to play himself into the super eagles team he broke his leg bones… I’m Glad he is back.. Very nice decision to try a lower club so he can get back to his formal self…

    We now have so now options in the middle ,the ishaq guy in Anderlecht is good , he is making the starting 11 for a good club like Anderlecht, but he got red carded recently, Yusuf is another good player.. All these new players should be invited for the upcoming friendly. Let get them integrated the earlier the better
