Top Israeli scout David Ouziel has urged English Premier League champions Leicester City to move for Oghenekaro Etebo of CD Feirense in the January transfer window.
Although they are heavily linked with a move for another Nigerian in Wilfred Ndidi of Genk, Ouziel believes the N’golo Kante role which they have failed to cover up since his departure to Chelsea, can be filled by Etebo with ease.
Leicester City who are struggling to agree on a price for Genk, could get Etebo for a lesser amount, even though his quality has been proven by his performances in Portugal and for the Nigerian team.
Ouziel who is famed for transferring talented Nigerian players revealed to Owngoalnigeria.com during a chat at his recently concluded screening exercise, that three years ago he saw the potential in Etebo, who is reportedly on the wish list of several European teams.
” Three years ago, I predicted that Etebo will be a top star, to me he is the best Nigerian player not playing in a top club. He is top quality and looks like what Leicester City are lacking at the moment” Ouziel told Owngoalnigeria.com.
” His price will be moderate but he is top quality and will be a bargain buy for any team that end up signing him in January, but I so badly wish he move to England, Leicester City precisely”.
