Godfrey Oboabona

ARSENE WENGER has handed a trial to Nigeria international defender Godfrey Oboabona.

The 22-year-old played a major role as his country won the African Nations Cup last month.
Arsenal boss Wenger will now run the rule over the £1m-rated centre-back who has won 18 caps and plays for the Sunshine Stars.
Oboabona said: “Arsenal are my favourite club from childhood. It is the club I want to play for.”

Who is Arsenal and Newcastle transfer target Godfrey Oboabona?

Post  Admin on Tue Jun 25, 2013 4:56 pm

He’s said to be subject of a transfer tug-of-war between Arsenal and Newcastle, and is regarded as one of the best players in Africa, but who exactly is Godfrey Oboabona?

What do we know about him?

Oboabona is a 23-year-old, 6’2 central defender who can also play in midfield (and has even been used as an emergency striker). He currently plays for Nigerian club Sunshine Stars in his home land, and has 18 caps for the national team.

Bit of a Jack of all trades, master of none then?

Not at all. Oboabona has proved himself in African football as a reliable player in whatever position, using his pace, power and strength to good effect.

And it’s his solid work ethic and ability to adapt to any situation that has seen him stand out – no wonder clubs all over Europe want to sign him.

Who exactly wants him?

Well, according to reports in Nigeria, Newcastle are leading the chase and hope to wrap up a deal at the end of the season.

But Arsenal had him on trial in March and are known to be huge admirers. They hold the advantage of being Oboabona’s boy hood club, but doubts over whether he would get a work permit mean the deal is complicated.

How much would he cost?

It’s thought that his club the Sunshine Stars would part with Oboabona for around £1million – a snip considering his quality and potential to improve.

With a little bit of negotiating, Premier League sides may even be able to bring that down further.
