Top Five Players Representing Premier League Clubs Eligible For Nigeria TeamsPublished: January 15, 2019
While the jostle for the addition of plausible potentials to the national teams continue to increase, thus tending to reduce the magnitude of European talent drain on African countries, not excluded to Nigeria, we will briefly take a cursory look at five of the country's best youngsters strutting their stuff with English clubs.
1.Xavier Amaechi (Arsenal): Amaechi was once regarded to be the next best thing to emerge from Hale End since the days of Jack Wilshere and was already on the cusp of a first team break through before an injury struck him down.
Now back and thriving with the club's second string, the 18-year-old winger has taken little time to get going and is yet displaying his eye-catching potential with three goals and four assists from just seven league outings this season.
2.Faustino Anjorin (Chelsea): Another scintillating youngster to watch on the books of a Premier League club, Anjorin is that pacy, silky midfielder with an unwavering eye for goals tearing apart defences in the PL2.
He is held in so much regard by the youth team coaches at Cobham and is probably, only been kept out of the senior setup by the bulk of attacking options at Stamford Bridge. He's already scored twice from six games for the U23s this term.
3.Shola Shoretire (Manchester United): Shoretire has grown in leaps and bound with the Red Devils youth team setup thanks to the skill sets at his disposal.
Aged just 15, he's already etched his name in the history books after making his competitive debut for the club in the UEFA Youth League.
4.Bobby Adekanye (Liverpool): Bobby is skillful, strong with a penchant for scoring goals inclusive, Neil Critchley and his men has no doubt, benefited immensely from the talents of the winger.
While there have been rumours of Serie A club, Lazio hovering around in a bid to offer him the first team football which he deserves, it all goes to explain that most European clubs have already taken notice of his quality.
5.Bukayo Saka (Arsenal): Much of the talk in recent weeks has been centered on the progress the dazzling winger has made since the Unai Emery took over the reigns at the Emirates, and their is little reason why.
Including having taken in four senior appearances for the club in three different competitions, Saka has scored two goals and one assist in his last three games for the young Gunners.
