The young playmaker, who trained at the Barça Academy in Lagos, Nigeria, is a free agent after parting ways with Joy Cometh Football Club.

Oseni has already had trials at several European clubs earlier this year, including Levante, Leganes, and Sabadell in Spain, as well as Ukrainian outfit Dnipro. The young talent, capable of playing on both flanks, is now set to have trials at Barcelona and Villarreal, who are said to be competing for his signing.

The Catalan giants have been working hard to strengthen their youth and subsidiary ranks with young talent, aiming to produce stars for the future from within the club. Oseni could be another step in that direction.

The attacking midfielder, known for his vision and ability to find teammates in pockets of space, will join the club on a free transfer, according to reports. With Villarreal also handing him a trial, Barcelona will have to wait before securing his services.

The 17-year-old’s next destination is seemingly a Spanish club as he waits for trials with Barcelona and Villarreal.
