Ogbuke Transfer Back On?

Ogbuke Transfer Back On?

Lyn Oslo striking starlet Chinedu Ogbuke could be on his way to the Premiership, with Arsenal, United Chelsea and Liverpool all rumoured to be interested in the youngster.

Ogbuke had sealed a transfer to Lokomotiv Moscow last month but it has since fallen through for reasons unknown.

It is thought that the 21-year-old striker could face some issues obtaining a work permit for a move to England. The words 'feeder` and 'club` spring to mind!

His manager, and former Manchester United defender Henning Berg says that his player is good enough for the premiership: 'Edu is good enough to play in the Premier League, I know that.

'The question is which club in the Premier League. There is bigger competition between these clubs than others.

'He has got permission to check if other clubs show interest during January.

'In case he is not sold during January, he will stay with us.'

He also believes that Manchester United will not follow up their previous interest in him: 'I know they have seen him earlier in the autumn.

'But I don't think it is likely now that they have brought in Henrik Larsson.

Arsene Wenger has claimed that he will not be signing anyone but the imminent departures of Anthony Stokes and Arturo Lupoli could tempt Wenger to make a move for the forward.

I maybe wrong here...but It seems to be that Wenger is letting people go if they make too many noises about demanding the first team apperences. He says it is upto the player to decide. So it is a notice of sorts to the players to show that they deserve and wait like everyone else. Eg is his comments about Lupoli wanting to back to Italy. He said "ofcourse we will respect his wishes". But I have a feeling that Stokes would knukkle down and wait for some more time.

That's a shame. I hope the last bit is true "Roy Keane spent six hours last night trying to persuade the youngster to sign for Sunderland." Can't stand Keane! Anyway, I hope Stokes stays at Arsenal but if he doesn't then I wish him well in his career (unless he's playing agsinst us).
