Allnigeriasoccer.com understands that the Nigeria Football Federation have leapfrogged the English Football Association and Royal Dutch Football Association in the race for the services of promising Arsenal youngster Malcolm Ebiowei.
Ebiowei has received his first ever invitation to the Nigeria squad ahead of the 2019 FIFA U17 World Cup and has given his word that he will join the team in Abuja.
The invitation letter with reference number NFF/GEN/TECH/203 VOL.VI/6 was sent to Arsenal Football Club on August 5, 2019.
The Nigerian Federation requested that Arsenal should release Ebiowei as he has been selected to join the rest of the Nigeria National U17 team for trials, which shall take place in Abuja on the 13th of August, 2019.
The 15-year-old budding star also has English and Dutch citizenship and has international caps for the youth teams of both countries.
Ebiowei has been described as a free-kick specialist and is a midfielder who is capable of playing on the wing, which he showed for the Dutch U15 side.
One of the most talented players at Arsenal Academy, he made the bench when the young Gunners faced Chelsea in the U18 Premier League back in the 2017-18 season at the age of fourteen.
