Orji in action

Serie A giants, Inter Milan, are keen on the services of Nigerian youngster, Orji Okonkwo, according to reports.

The 19-year-old, former U-17 and 20 star has been a revelation in Italy since he joined Bologna, scoring 14 goals in all competitions so far, including an hat-trick against Cagliri last week.

Okonkwo is already being compared to Obafemi Martins because of his pace and power and an incredible eye for goals. Coincidentally, Martins also played for the Nerazzurri alongside Brazilian striker Luis Andriano.

Bologna are reluctant to do business with Inter Milan but an offer in excess of €7m could see the Nigerian make a big switch to the Sansiro this summer.
