Barcelona Eyeing Nigerian Playmaker Ibrahim Afolabi Oseni
Barcelona have shown keen interest in the 17-year-old Nigerian wonderkid, Ibrahim Afolabi Oseni.
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 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.
