Britain’s largest football agency Stellar Group has signed four Nigerian Golden Eaglets players. In what is a major coup for the company, Kelechi Nwakali, Samuel Chukwueze, David Enogena and Joel Osikel, all of the Under-17 World Cup-winning Nigerian team have agreed to come under the management of Stellar Group, who also have Real Madrid star Gareth Bale on their books.
The UK Daily Mail reports that all are expected to sign for top European clubs in the January transfer window, with Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City and Arsenal
among those interested.
Attacking midfielder Nwakali is seen as a midfielder in the mould of Manchester City’s Yaya Touré. His elder brother, Chidiebere Nwakali, is currently contracted to Man City, though he’s presently on loan in Spain.
Chukwueze is a striker. He scored three goals at the recently ended Under-17 world cup in Chile. Enogena and Osikel are both midfielders.
Stellar, founded by David Manasseh and Jonathan Barnett, employ their own scouts and have a brilliant track record for signing young players.
Around half of the England Under-17 side, who went out of the 2015 World Cup at the group stage, are on their books.
By far the company’s biggest client is Gareth Bale whose record-breaking transfer from Manchester United to Real Madrid some years ago cost the buying Spanish club 85 million pounds.
