Former Liverpool winger Jordon Ibe has received an offer by coach of the Nigerian team Gernot Rohr to represent Nigeria at the World Cup in Russia , a source close to the player told Owngoalnigeria.com.
22 year old Ibe turned down the chance to represent Nigeria in 2015, when former coach of the team Sunday Oliseh tried to lure him, shortly after his breakthrough at Liverpool.
His form at Bournemouth has improved tremendously this season after shaking off the pressure of the £15m transfer fee tag paid to Liverpool for his signature two seasons ago.
This season he has seven assists in all competitions with a goal to his name, but his all round play has been impressive, and it had led to talks of a possible call up by England manager Gareth Southgate who managed him at U-21 level with the English national team.
A source close to the player claimed he was offered a chance to represent Nigeria at the World Cup in Russia later this year, but he is yet to consider the offer as he is still hoping of forcing his way into the squad of the Three Lions.
