In from Nifemi Daniel…
German Bundesliga club Hamburg SV and top Norwegian club Rosenborg have expressed interest in signing Flying Eagles skipper Musa Mohammed.
Top scouts of the Bundesliga club have been monitoring Musa for several months now, but cooled their interest after they thought he had already moved to Turkey.
But further investigations have shown that is not the case and they are now expected to make a presentation to the board after which a formal offer will be tabled not later than this week.
The player’s agent, Adam Mohammed who also transferred Macauley Chrisantus to Hamburg soon after he top scored at the 2007 FIFA U17 World Cup revealed that the deal is almost concluded.
Musa Mohammed, 18, from FC Hearts Abuja also has an offer from Turkey and Norwegian club Rosenborg have also expressed interest in the player widely tipped to soon make his full international debut for Nigeria.
Last season, Hamburg barely escaped relegation from the German top flight after they finished a disappointing 16th on the table.
