Viking of Norway are currently mulling over a bid from an unnamed German side for the services of their 19 year old Nigerian forward Suleiman Abdullahi according to reports sourced by Owngoalnigeria.com.

He has been a target for German second division team St. Pauli but this time around there is no confirmation if it’s the same team that are back in for him.

Viking in the last two transfer windows rejected two bids from the German second division side holding out for a larger transfer fee but according to reports, the rumoured new bid is said to be lesser that what St. Pauli offered.

However despite the fact that the bid is said to be lower than what Viking have received in the past, this time around they appear willing to do business as talks are already at an advanced stage going by what we gathered.

Abdullahi had a total of nine goals from 30 games last season in all competition but he is presently just two goals shy of his overall tally for last season after 13 games this season, a sign of his improvement in front of goal.

He is one of four Nigerians currently at Viking, the others been Samuel Adegbenro,Usman Sale and Aniekpene Udo.
