Exclusive: Leicester, Celtic Ahead Of Liverpool, Man Utd, Chelsea In Race For 'New Victor Moses'
Allnigeriasoccer.com can exclusively report that two British clubs have shown the most interest to sign Nigeria U17 international Ibrahim Said when he attains the age of majority.

Former Premier League champions Leicester City and Scottish Premiership champions Celtic are presently in the driving seat for the signature of the Dabo Babes Academy midfielder, who has been dubbed the new Victor Moses back in his homeland.

If everything goes well, the plan is for Said and his minders to travel to the United Kingdom in January 2020 for the final round of talks with the Foxes and the Bhoys.

Said is a promising versatile midfielder who was the first player to score a hat-trick at the 2019 FIFA U17 World Cup, and one of the three goals against Ecuador was nominated for the Goal of the Tournament by FIFA.

Premier League quartet Manchester City, Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea have also explored the possibility of signing the Golden Eaglets number 20 but are lagging behind Celtic and Leicester City.

Other European clubs that have made contact with Said's camp are Porto and Benfica in Portugal as well as Club Brugge in Belgium.

Contrary to reports, it is confirmed that Said did not attend the Ballon d’Or awards held in France earlier this month.
