Golden Eaglets striker, Taiwo Awoniyi, is discussing a transfer to Kalmar FF after he arrived the Swedish club along with his representatives, MTNFootball.com reports.
The 16-year-old striker, who scored four goals as Nigeria won a record fourth FIFA U-17 World Cup in November, is to discuss the possibility of teaming up with the Swedish club.
Should talks progress as hoped, Awoniyi will undergo a medical and get a pro contract when he turns 18 next year.
According to barometern.se, Awoniyi is already impressed with the facilities and warmth of the people he met at Kalmar.
The promising striker has other offers from Mexico, Sampdoria and Brescia, among others.
Former international Seyi Olofinjana, who is in Sweden with the Eaglets star, said his plan is for Awoniyi to go to a place where he will become a better player.
Olofinjana is the director of the youngster’s academy in Nigeria.
“The key is for him to go to a place, where he can take the next step,” said Olofinjana, who incidentally started his professional career in next-door Norway.
