Osimhen: Why I snubbed Arsenal move for Wolfsburg | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f


Victor Osimhen has admitted he chose Wolfsburg over Arsenal, because he feels he will have more playing time with the Bundesliga team.

The 18-year-old has signed a three-and-a-half year deal with Wolfsburg from Nigeria side, Ultimate Strikers Academy, in a transfer reportedly worth €3.5million.

Osimhen, who was named CAF’s Youth Player of the Year in 2015, was also coveted by Serie A sides, Inter Milan and Fiorentina.

“There were many clubs that were interested in me,” Osimhen told Bild.

“But my choice was Wolfsburg because I think that my development opportunities are highest here.

“If I had gone to Arsenal, for example, I might not have found the route to the first team so quickly.

“I love football and I have worked hard to get where I am now.”
