Oboabona, 22, who was a delight in the heart of defence for Nigeria in the African Nations Cup last month, caught the roving eyes of Arsenal boss, Wenger, who will now run the rule over the £1m-rated centre-back who has won 18 caps and plays for Sunshine Stars of Akure.

Oboabona said: “Arsenal are my favourite club from childhood. It is the club I want to play for.”
