The agent of highly rated Nigerian teen Sadiq Umar has confirmed to owngoalnigeria.com that Arsenal are facing competition for the services of his client from German giants Borrussia Dortmund.
“Yes we have been approached by Arsenal but they are not the only team that have signify interest in Sadiq as Borrussia Dortmund are also pushing for him” Mohammed Lawal told owngoalnigeria.com
“In the coming days or weeks we will know where he is heading to but for now he is very happy and focus at Roma”.
Owngoalnigeria.com gathered Roma will reportedly demand £10m for the 18 year old who has two serie A goals to his name from interested parties a fee that most team will struggle to meet.
Already Arsenal have failed with a bid just under £5m and will be hoping they clinch his signature with a deal that will consist of several add ons to make up the difference in their valuation of the player.
Roma are keen to hold on to the 6 feet plus teen but with director Walter Sabbatini set to depart in the summer a clear out of the youth team top players is reportedly on with Umar and Antonio Sanabria the most likely to be sold.
