Frozen out of the first team set-up since Luciano Spalleti took over at Serie A side AS Roma, Nigeria teenager Sadiq Umar is making hay with the Primavera side of the team.

After scoring a hattrick in their 7-0 drubbing of Crotone he now has 16 goals to his name in all competition for the Primavera side who are pushing for the title for the first time since 2011.

The manner in which he took his treble will remind manager Luciano Spalleti of the abilities of the 19 year old who is reportedly on the wanted list of Arsenal and Borrussia Dortmund in the summer.

Hattrick aside he picked up an assist and won a penalty in all all round display which showed his technical superiority to the players he was playing against.

In the Serie A he has two goals from the six games he has played this season, all under former manager Rudi Garcia.
