Godfrey Oboabona: Starred for Nigeria as they landed the 2013 Africa Cup of Nati

The 22-year-old caught the eye at the Africa Cup of Nations in January, bringing him to the attention of clubs across Europe.

He played a starring role for Nigeria as they tasted continental glory and it is expected that Oboabona will soon be on the move.

The highly-rated centre-half is currently turning out for the Sunshine Stars, but has jumped at the chance to try and win himself a move to England.

He said: "Arsenal are my favourite club from childhood. It is the club I want to play for."

While the Gunners would be Oboabona's preferred destination, he admits he will have a number of options to consider in the summer regardless of how things turn out for him at the Emirates.

He told MTNFootball.com: "I already have offers from the top five leagues in the world. But like you know the transfer window had closed by the time the Nations Cup ended.

"If I want to make any move now then it would be to an African country, and I don't want such a move when I have offers from Europe.

"So, I would rather wait until the summer and make the right choice instead of rushing into any move."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

F365's Top Ten Defenders Of The Season

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
