Another top transfer might be on the horizon for another Nigerian player with English Premier League side Crystal Palace identifying a senior international for Nigeria in the January transfer window, OwnGoalNigeria.com understands.
Palace are keen on strengthening and also increasing their options at right back and have made the signing of one in this window as one of their priorities before the end of the ongoing window by the end of this month.
Reports from Turkey have it that Fenerbahce defender Bright Osayi-Samuel is close to a move to the English Premier League side in a deal reportedly worth €11.28M. The deal is said to have reached an advanced stage with all parties involved keen on making it happen.
Osayi-Samuel made his senior international debut for Nigeria against Portugal in a friendly game and was the stand out player despite the Super Eagles suffering a humiliating 4-0 defeat. This season he has made 25 appearances with 15 coming in the league.
He represented two English teams in Blackpool and later QPR before moving to Turkey. It means a move back to England appeals to the 25 year old who is keen on returning back to England, where he has his family.
