Nigerian Football Federation is hoping to convince Queens Park Rangers’ star, Eberechi Eze to join the Super Eagles.
The Greenwich-born player who has already featured for England at U-20 and U-21 level is also eligible to play for Nigeria.
The 21-year old has previously trained with Super Eagles during their London training in 2017.
NFF officials are making serious attempts to convince the youngster to join the Nigerian side and have taken to their twitter handle to confirm they held talks with Eze.
“President of NFF, Mr. Amaju Pinnick has met with QPR midfielder Ebere Eze in London and conversation is ongoing about the possibility of Eze turning out for Nigeria,” the NFF stated on the social media site.
“Yesterday Eze also visited President Pinnick in the latter’s London home.
“During discussions, the player was informed of the President’s desire, which echoes that of many Nigerians to see Ebere Eze switch allegiance and start playing his international football for Nigeria.
“Talks are ongoing but the player has requested the chance to continue to focus on his club career which is going well so far and that further progress will be made in due course.”
Eze has featured 17 times in EFL Championship and scored six goals and four assists.
