Niger Tornadoes forward Mubarak Ejiougu is set to seal a deal with Israel top-flight side Hapoel Be’er Sheva, Futbalgalore.com can exclusively reveal.
The 18-year-old Nigerian hitman has been training with the Be’er Sheva-based club for the past one week.
He scored in a trial match for The Camels against Hapoel Ramat Gan on Friday.
Scouts from Maccabi Tel Aviv, Beiter Jerusalem, Hapoel Haifa and Hapoel Tel Aviv were in attendance to see Ejiogu perform in the friendly.
Before leaving the shores of Nigeria, the teenager was on the radar of clubs in Eastern Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.
Futbalgalore.com understands the deal will be finalised early next week.
If Ejiogu signs, he won’t be home sick as Super Eagles duo John Ogu and Anthony Nwakaeme will make him settle down at Hapoel Be’er Sheva.
