“Orji Okwonkwo is a young player scouted by Bologna three years ago who will help reinforce the team offensively.

“He’s a strong and quick forward who has an interesting margin of progression. I would like to welcome him to the team.”

    We are keeping our eyes on this young man.

     
  • Orji Okonkwo was one of the three man striker force of the victorious under 17 world cup winning team. Orji like Osihmen and Samuel Chukwueze has made great marks with their respect teams.

    Orji has made great progression at Bologna until this season when he’s barely used. Orji’s scoring ability and football sense is highly commendable going by his high riding performance last season where he scored crucial goals. Now that he joins Montrwal on loan, it is hoped that he makes the most of the opportunities to improve his stocks to get a better deal.
