Highly rated Nigerian teen forward David Emmanuel is reportedly courting interest from Spanish side Granada and Italian outfit Udinese, even though he is scheduled to have trials with Lillestroem.

Owngoalnigeria.com gathered from sources close to the 18 year old striker, who can also play on the wings that he has been granted visa for trials with Lillestroem.

However there is interest in his services from Granada and Udinese which could see him head for trials there, instead of Lillestroem who first invited him.

The Geelec Academy prospect is known for his quick feet in tight areas and lethal finish in front of goal right from his days as a primary school pupil in Kaduna, where he turned out for Ikon Allah FC.

Injury cost him his place in the Nigeria U19 squad, which went a long way in affecting the performance of the team during the 2017 Africa Youth Championship qualifiers.
