The striker will now have to face the likes of Victor Osimhen (Napoli), Kelechi Iheanacho (Leicester City), Paul Onuachu (Genk), Terem Moffi FC Lorient) and Taiwo Awoniyi (Union Berlin) for a place in the Eagles squad.
“’Simy’ is another player at the centre of our scouting, but in the Nigeria squad, we have many high-profile strikers,” he told Tuttomercatoweb.com
“There is great competition in the role of centre-forward and it will not be easy for him to get a place.”
