Top scorer at the 2015 Under-17 World Cup Victor Osimhen, who was also named CAF’s Youth Player of the Year in 2015, was targeted by Arsenal, before moving to Wolfsburg, he has revealed.


The striker feels he could develop better and make the first team at Wolfsburg than it would have been at Arsenal.

“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.”
