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.”
