Highly rated Nigerian teen midfielder Theophilus Awua is seriously courting interest from Serie A side Roma, Owngoalnigeria.com can exclusively reveal.
Awua joined Inter-Milan in the summer on loan from Spezia on a deal that gives the Milan side the first option of signing him permanently in the summer.
However Inter are yet to firm up their interest in the 18 year old, who has evolved into one of the stars of their Primavera side in his first season with the club.
Roma are reportedly lining up a move for the services of the box to box midfielder, and contact have already been established with Spezia, the club that owns the economic right of the Football Abuja graduate.
Rated by former England international John Fashanu as one of the best teen prospect in Nigeria football, his future will no doubt cause both teams to go up against each other in the summer.
