 Arsenal not keen on selling Nigerian-Denmark prodigy Obi-Martins — Romano

 Arsenal not keen on selling Nigerian-Denmark prodigy Obi-M

Arsenal are keen to keep fast-rising star Chido Obi-Martin at the club despite the interest in the young Denmark U-17 striker of Nigerian descent, according to football transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano.

Obi-Martin recently represented the Danes in the UEFA U-17 Championship and has been turning attention to his goal-scoring abilities before then for the Arsenal youth team. 

There have been reports in the media of the interest shown by German Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich but Romano has allayed the fears of Arsenal fans by disclosing that the Gunners have no plans to sanction the sale of the Hale End Academy product. 

"Despite some talks of Arsenal wonder kid Chido Obi Martin now being in advanced negotiations with Bayern Munich, I’m told the situation with Obi Martin is still open.

"Bayern and Borussia Dortmund have been showing interest in the talented young striker for months, but Arsenal are still there and still trying to get him to sign a new contract and keep Chido at the club. Let’s see what happens in the next days."

Obi-Martin was one of the best players when the brightest young talents converged in Cyprus at the European Championship where his team reached the semifinals before they were eliminated by eventual winners, Italy. 

The striker who could get the interest of the Nigerian selectors in the coming years scored 32 goals in 18 appearances in the U-18 Premier League, setting a club record for the highest number of goals scored by a player in a single season.

The striker whose schoolboy registration with the north London side expires June 30 is billed to be offered a professional contract in November 2024 when he turns 17 years old.
