Lobi Stars have moved fast to give Nigeria a good representation at next year’s CAF Champions League as they have begun moves to snap up defender Olamilekan Adeleye, who recently made his Super Eagles debut in Liberia.
SCORENigeria gathered that coach Solomon Ogbeide has made the highly-rated central defender his No 1 target as the Makurdi club get set to feature at the 2019 Champions League.
“Adeleye is the main target for Lobi Stars who want to fortify their central defence,” a top source close to the club informed SCORENigeria
“But they have several other NPFL clubs to contend with like Enugu Rangers for the signature of the big centre-half.”
Adeleye, who has been nicknamed ‘Ramos’ after the all-action Real Madrid captain, was also coveted by Akwa United this past season.
