It is commonplace for Premier League clubs to prove their superiority and mettle on the pitch but one growing trend is the clash between clubs in the transfer market.
With the season nearing its end, the media wave is already heating up with several transfer reports. After struggling in the League, Manchester United and Arsenal are expected to spend heavily in the summer.
Reports making the rounds according a Nigerian site , claims Arsenal and Man United transfer target Oghenekaro Etebo is also drawing interest from a host of European clubs as claimed by the midfielders agent.
Etebo, 21, won the award of the most promising talent at CAF in the January of last year before a made a switch from Warri Wolves to Portuguese Club CD Feirense in the same month.
According to a report by the Express, Man United had their scout watched the talented midfielder when he played for Nigeria in March while the Gunners have also have a long standing interest the attacking midfielder.
The midfielder will be out of contract next month but his agent claims the player is attracting keen interest from other clubs while he’s yet to be offered an extension contract with his club.
“So many teams are interested in Etebo, but no offer has been made yet,” the representative told AllNigeriaSoccer.
“His contract with CD Feirense will end next June and he has not been offered a new one.
“I have been contacted by agents representing Turkish and German clubs.
“Fenerbahce is not one of the clubs involved and we have not been officially approached by any team from England.”
Jose Mourinho is expected to bolster his squad when the transfer window comes alive in the summer. He will be without Wayne Rooney and Michael Carrick at the end of the season. The Red Devils have been linked to a plethora of midfielder even if a deal for the Nigerian fails to pull through.
Etebo is not the archetypal midfielder wanted by Arsenal but his price tag may be one factor to be considered by Wenger.
