TRANSFER MARKET: European Clubs shun Super Eagles players

The January transfer window is on and there have been lots of movement of players, a lot of deals and ongoing negotiations involving clubs, managers and players. Indeed, it has been a very busy period for agents and scouts, especially in the Premier League where there have been exciting arrivals and departures. It has been breathtaking.


However, that has not been the case with Nigeria internationals plying their trades in Europe. Except for Terem Moffi who has been attracting interests from clubs in the top European leagues including the Liga, Bundesliga and the English Premier League, the transfer market has been relatively quiet for Nigerian stars.


Moffi who plays for Lorient, a Ligue 1 side in France has been in sizzling form, banging in goals at will. In the midweek fixture, he scored his 11th goal of the season in Lorient’s 2-2 draw with Monaco to go level with Neymar who has managed as many strikes this term, so far. The striker is now in third place among Ligue 1’s leading goal scorers, two goals behind France’s Kylian Mbappé.
