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


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.”
