Top on the manager’s list is 23 year old forward Osayamen Osawe who has five goals for 2. Bundesliga side Kaiserslautern in his first season at the club following his transfer in the summer from third division side Hallescher FC.

While most Nigerians are keen on having Kelvin Akpoguma, Rohr according to sources close to the coach is keeping a close watch on 19 year old 1860 Munich defender Felix Uduokhai, who has been earning rare reviews for 1860 Munich.

In his first season with the main team, he has made four appearances with a goal to his name from his position as a central defender for the Munich side.

We exclusively gathered that 20 year old Hannover midfielder of Nigerian heritage Noah-Joel Sarenren Bazee, who has two games under his belt for promotion chasing Hannover 96.
