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."

riting a minute by minute account on Berbatov would be like chronicling the days of the guy punished for sloth in the movie Se7en. Day 4 - lay in bed, did nothing - 15th minute, stood there did nothing .
