The scintillating skillful display of Golden Eaglets striker, Ahmed Abdullahi has caught the attention of top European clubs, as they battle to sign the prolific Nigerian teenage attacker, reports www.totorinews.com exclusively.

Ahmed has been in Europe for about a month where he dazzled in training sessions, delivering the business of scoring goals easily with the U 19 teams of Olympic Marseille in France and Borussia Dortmund in Germany.

It was very phenomenal for him in Marseille where he scored 15 goals within two days of some training sessions and this feat has made Marseille fans to look forward to the possible signing of the Nigerian striking sensation.
In an exclusive chat with www.totorinews.com in Abuja, Ismail Hamza popularly called Veron,  the Head of Recruitment and Coordinator of HB  Football Academy in Kubwa, Abuja where Abdullahi nurtured his football, informed that about six clubs in Europe showed interest in the striker after his exploits with the Golden Eaglets at the WAFU B U 17 tournament in Togo, but it has now been narrowed down to three top tops in Europe.

Ahmed…scored 15 goals in two days

“Top European clubs were eager to have Ahmed Abdullahi under their tutelage in Europe after he performed very well at the WAFU U 17 tournament in Togo, where he scored two goals in the tournament,” Hamza told www.totorinews.com exclusively. 

“Feyenoord in Holland, AC Milan, Napoli, Dortmund, Marseille and Gent all clamoured for Ahmed, but along the line, Dortmund, Marseille and later Gent really showed interest.

“He is in Europe at the moment. He went to Marseille where he trained with the U 19 team and he was very superb. He scored 15 goals in just two days of training sessions of morning and in the evening.

“The management of Marseille and their fans were eager to have him, but we felt it is better for Ahmed to test his might with the U 19 team of Borussia Dortmund in Germany and it was good we took him there.

“He faced a very stiff opposition in the defence of U 19 team of Dortmund compared to Marseille where he was just scoring goals easily.

“In Germany, he was able to score goals to proof himself as a good striker, but it did  not come easily and that was what we wanted to see. For him to have a taste of another team in Europe.

“As it is now, Gent have also showed interest. We just want to ensure that he moves to a club in Europe that will help tremendously in his development. He is just 17 years old.
