Young Nigerian teen sensation Lateef Omidiji Jr who currently plays for Dutch side Sparta Rotterdam and has reportedly caught the attentions of Europe’s top guns.
The 13-year-old forward is tipped to become a star and is on the radar of Real Madrid, Chelsea and Barcelona.
According to AllNigeriaSoccer.com, Arsenal has beaten off competition and have an agreed deal with Lateef Omidiji, as the London side are willing to allow the teenager train with the youth team every summer till he is old enough to pen a professional contract.
Omidiji who currently trains with Sparta Rotterdam’s youth academy, a club which has produced numbers of stars over the years likes of Memphis Depay and Georginio Wijnaldum.
However, Nigeria Under-15s coach Danladi Nasidi admitted last year they are keen to poach him.
“He has speed, focus, the technique is so good, the tactical approach is fine and he has the physical ability,” Nasidi told website Goal.
“If he comes to play for Nigeria, it will be good for Nigeria.”
