Another Nigerian should be taking the Bundesliga by storm in the coming weeks if the comments by Super Eagles Coach Genort Rohr is anything to go by.

Rohr at a recent media parley in Lagos confirmed that he has been making contacts with Wolfsburg in Germany and the reports he is getting over Osimhen are quite encouraging; adding that the striker could be taking a key role in the Super Eagles pretty soon.

"Also Victor Osimhen is having a good beginning at Wolfsburg. I spoke with Wolfsburg manager and he said Victor is doing very well.

"And who says Victor who will be playing in the Bundesliga cannot come and play as our number nine? Rohr queried.

Osimhen, 18, will this month be eligible to feature for Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga after he signs a professional contract.

The youngster broke unto the scene when he finished as top scorer with 10 goals at the last FIFA U17 World Cup, and he has since gone on to play for the Nigeria U20 and U23 teams, but is yet to feature for the Super Eagles
