Arsenal, Ajax Amsterdam and RSC Anderlecht are monitoring the performances of Samson Okikiola Tijani, Akinkunmi Ayobami Amoo and Olatomi Alfred Olaniyan with a view to signing the players when they attain the age of majority.

The three midfielders started the two Golden Eaglets group matches against Burkina Faso and Ivory Coast, with Amoo picking up the Man of the Match accolade in the 5-1 rout of the Little Elephants on Thursday.

Olaniyan also impressed in the Golden Eagles fantastic victory over the Ivorian team, scoring a brace inside the opening ten minutes.
