Leicester City Interested In Etebo

 

 

According to Portuguese paper A Bola, Premier League champions Leicester City are keeping tabs on Nigerian international Oghenekaro Etebo.

 

Etebo, 21, who plays for Feirense in the Portuguese Primeira Liga, has been attracting interest from around Europe since his four-goal haul in Nigeria's 5-4 win over Japan at the Olympics in August.

 

A Bola reported that aside from Leicester City who already have Wilfred Ndidi and Ahmed Musa, Etebo has also attracted interest from Turkish giants Fenerbahce. 

 

The Rio 2016 Olympic star has made 14 appearances for Feirense this season but is yet to score.

 

Etebo who has six caps for the Super Eagles has one goal, scored on his debut against Egypt in a 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier which ended 1-1. 

 

Etebo provided an assist for Mikel Obi in the Super Eagles' 3-1 World Cup qualifying win over Algeria in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers in November.

 

He is in the Nigeria squad to face Senegal and Burkina Faso in their friendlies which comes up on March 23 and 27, at Barnet's The Hive Stadium, England.
