Arsenal, Liverpool and PSG Chasing Hot Nigerian Youngster

Top teams across like Europa league finalist Arsenal, European champions Liverpool and French League champions Paris Saint-Germain are some of the clubs after young outbreaking Nigerian defender Owen Otasowie.

The centre-back, 18, qualifies for three countries and caught the eye of Paris Saint-Germain after playing against them in the Premier League International Cup for Wolverhampton Wanderers Under-23s.
Apart from the obvious attention from the French giants, there is interest from German Bundesliga club Schalke 04 , who have a reputation for pushing youngsters through.

The Bundesliga giants currently have ex-Huddersfield boss David Wagner in charge which could be an advantage for their transfer ambition.

Euro scouts are aware the teenager is out of contract in the summer and moves for training compensation should he move abroad.
But Premier League clubs are also monitoring his progress at Molineaux, with Arsenal and Liverpool tracking him.

Otasowie can play for England by residence, Nigeria by heritage and the United States of America but has not decided on his international future yet and the versatile star, who can also play in midfield, only joined Wolves' Under-23s squad in July.

He's been mostly limited to bench appearances, having managed just 86 minutes across four games in the Premier League 2.

Meanwhile, Super Eagles fans have advice gaffer Gernot Rohr to scout for foreign born centre back with Brighton and Hove defender Leon Balogun on decline and inactive for his club side.
