Italian Serie A side Roma are yet to hear from Barcelona over their interest in Nigerian teen full back Nura Abdullahi, who was reportedly hotly chased by the Spanish giants before he got injured last season.

The 18 year old sparkled in a UEFA Youth League game for Roma against Barcelona last season, but a deal for the attacking teen full back was at that time too complicated as he was on loan to Roma from Serie B side Spezia.

Roma exercised the option they have in making his deal a permanent one this summer, but an injury which required surgery plus a lengthy road to recovery means interest from Barcelona died down a bit.

However he is back to his best possible shape after returning back from the surgery in record time but his intermediary Mohammed Lawal says, they have been no contact with Barcelona since his return.

” Maybe you asking me this question earlier than you supposed to because he just returned back to training, anyway aside the first contact we are yet to hear from them” He told Owngoalnigeria.com.
