Following the success of Sadiq Umar and Nura Abdullahi, Italian Serie A side AS Roma have added 16 year old Nigerian forward Adams Mohammed to their Primavera side.

Adams impressed scouts of the Serie A side during a youth tournament in Italy where he was one of the shining light for Football Academy Abuja, same team that produced the duo of Nura and Sadiq who are presently with the Serie A side.

Owngoalnigeria.com made attempts to know the duration of the contract Adam signed with the Serie A side but to no avail as none of the club official was willing to disclose the terms of the deal.

However we were told by a top official of the Abuja based Academy that aside Adams, AS Roma also have three other kids from the Academy training with their U-16 team since the start of the year.
