Sunshine Stars defender Godfrey Oboabona is being urged to grab his chance at Arsenal.

The Nigeria international is expected to be offered trials by the Gunners before the end of the season.

Former Super Eagles assistant coach Fatai Amoo has told Oboabona not to think twice should Arsenal call: "Arsenal is a big club and it will be in the interest of Godfrey (Oboabona) to accept their offer for a trial in London.

"It’s not an insult on the Nigerian senior national team because Godfrey himself has never played club football in Europe. He may have done well at the Africa Cup of Nations but he is still a young player who has never even played in Eastern Europe not to talk of Western Europe. It’s not an insult on him or the Super Eagles at all.”
