‎27 year old Nigerian striker Godwin Mensha has emerged as the top target for most teams in the Middle East following his strong performances for Iranian side Paykan ‎.

The pacy forward who started his career abroad with‎ Spanish side Compostella has grown in leaps and bounds since joining Paykan just before the start of the season in Iran.

So far he has found the back of the net 14 times, with a brace in the last four games he has found the back of the net. His form has no doubt made him the subject of inquiry from top teams around the Middle East.

Mensha has already bettered his last season tally of 10 goals scored for Maltese side Mosta. A feat he achieved from 16 games in his only season at the club he joined from another team in Malta Balzan.

Paykan are aware that he will leave them in the summer for a top team, and they are already shopping for his replacement despite the season still having games to run.
