SCORENigeria can exclusively report that English Championship side Birmingham City are keeping tabs on Nigeria striker Alhaji Gero with the hope of signing him.
Sources told SCORENigeria that scouts representing Birmingham City were at a recent UEFA Europa League game between Alhaji Gero’s Ostersunds FK and Turkish giants Galatasaray.
The contract of the former Flying Eagles striker at Ostersunds will run out in June 2018 and he could play in England because he already has Swedish nationality.
It is now also understood he has yet to agree a contract extension with his Swedish club.
The big target man has scored twice in the Europa League with his club top of the Group J table, which has Athletic Club Bilbao and Hertha Berlin, with seven points from three matches.
This is the 24-year-old striker’s sixth season in Europe.
