Esperance of Tunisia have joined rivals CSS Sfaxien in the battle for the top scorer in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) Godwin Obaje of Wikki Tourist.
Obaje extended his top scorer lead with his 18th of the season in his team 1-2 loss to Enyimba in a rescheduled game, which has put their title aspirations in doubt.
However the 19 year old who has remained consistent all through the season has done enough to suggest he won’t remain with the Bauchi based team next season.
The younger brother to former Black Leopards of South Africa forward Joshua Obaje told Owngoalnigeria.com in a chat last month, that he is aware of interest from Sfaxien and two teams from Israel.
” Esperance of Tunisia contacted us through an agent just like Sfaxien, but the decision is entirely up to the lad, the interest is not a problem he has helped himself that much” An official of Wikki Tourist told Owngoalnigeria.com.
All efforts to contact the soft spoken forward on the interest of Esperance proved abortive as his three mobile numbers were switched off, as at the time of going to press.
