Nigeria Under 23 coach Samson Siasia has recently admitted he is planning to contact Anichebe about the possibility of participating in Beijing next summer.
He said: "Starting from the U23 team is not a bad idea and an avenue for him. I know he is disappointed right now but Berti Vogts has so many quality attackers in the team.
"He is a young man and we all know that he is a great player. So if he wants to come and join my team, the door is open."
