Chief scout of Swedish club Hammarby hope they could soon complete the transfer of Golden Eaglets forward Akin Amoo.
Amoo will clock 18 on Sunday which will allow him to sign a professional contract in Europe.
“We have always said that we have had, and still have, an ambition to carry out the transfer of “Akin” and it remains,” chief scout Mikael Hjelmberg to the Football Channel
“Then he has to turn 18 before we can do anything and he does that on Sunday.
“We’ll see if we can get to the finish.”
The Coronavirus Pandemic has meant the transfer will not be that simple no thanks to international travel restrictions among other challenges.
“He needs to move from Nigeria to Sweden and the question is whether it is even possible to do right now,” said the Hammarby official
“Then we also have to work out the conditions for that move, so there a lot remains.”
