VFL Wolfsburg's Nigerian forward, Victor Osimhen has explained reasons why he opted to join the former German champions rather that Arsenal, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Osimhen who was unveiled at the club this week told German newspaper Bild that he felt a first-team breakthrough was more likely to happen sooner at Wolfsburg than it would be at Arsenal.
The 18-year-old joined Wolfsburg on a three-and-a-half-year deal from Nigerian local side Ultimate Strikers Academy in a deal reportedly worth €3.5million.
"There were many clubs that were interested in me," Osimhen told Bild.
"But my choice was Wolfsburg because I think that my development opportunities are highest here.
"If I had gone to Arsenal, for example, I might not have found the route to the first team so quickly.
"I love football and I have worked hard to get where I am now."11 BUSINESS NUGGETS FROM SUPER EAGLES BRONZE MEDAL TRIUMPH. The content of this ebook will propel you above your competition. DOWNLOAD NOW!!!
