NFF Set To Lure Chelsea's Abraham To Play For Super Eagles

By Augustine Akhilomen

The Nigeria Football Federation are working round the clock to ensure they convince on loan Chelsea player, Tammy Abraham to play for the Super Eagles.

Having represented England U-21, Abraham is still legible to represent Nigeria since he's yet to play for the England senior national team.

This is not the first time the NFF have approached Abraham and his dad. The Federation spoke to them in July 2016 to sound them out on the prospect. At the time, father and son felt the youngster’sbfocus should be with England. Nigeria’s UK chief David Doherty said of the meeting.

Abraham has a big decision to make. Should he chose Nigeria over England, he would not be the first Chelsea player to make the swap. Nigeria have a record of success when it comes to claiming potential England stars for their own. Victor Moses and more recently Ola Aina have both made the switch. Abraham will need to consider several options before making up his mind.
