Spanish La-Liga giants Valencia will be keeping a close eye on the poster boy of Nigeria Rio 2016 men’s football team Ogenekaro Etebo, during the course of the season in Portugal.

Etebo plays for newly promoted Portuguese top division side CD Feirense, and Valencia will be sending scouts to watch him play once he is fully recovered from the hamstring injury that kept him out of Nigeria’s final three games at the Olympics.

A deal for him in the future looks more likely, if he impresses the scout of the team that is assigned to Portugal to make checks on him.

Owngoalnigeria.com exclusively gathered from sources in Spain, that the 20 year old who scored four goals in Nigeria’s opening Rio 2016 game against Japan is also on the radar of several teams in Europe.

However CD Feirense have made it clear, that he won’t be sold this season as they want to keep him, to help them do well in their first campaign in the top flight of Portuguese football.

The former Warri Wolves forward joined CD Feirense last season and scored once from the 4 games he played before the end of the season.
