Two top European clubs have made offers to the goalkeeper of the world conquering Golden Eaglets, Dele Alampasu.
Alampasu told journalists in Abuja that he would move to an European club in January after he received concrete offers from Juventus of Italy and Club Genk of Belgium.
On whether he would have preferred offers from English Premier League clubs like some of his Golden Eaglets teammates, Alampasu responded "No."
“English premiership is no good for me to start; I think I should start from Belgium, Italy or Germany, that will be okay for now.”
The former Abuja football academy shot-stopper expressed joy at being invited to the camp of the Nigerian-based Super Eagles in preparation for the African football championship, CHAN.
“I am so happy to be here in the Super Eagles, I know it is not easy to be with the senior boys in the senior team, they took us as their junior brother and everybody is like one family here,” the footballer said at the Abuja camp of the Eagles.
Alampasu, who won the golden gloves as the best goalkeeper at the recently concluded FIFA U17 World Cup, also confessed that he would like to continues his education and get a business-related degree.
He plans to enroll in school after signing for a football club.
The goalkeeper also encouraged young people, involved in professional football, saying they should pray hard, bring their heads down and not lose focus.
"One day you’ll be there," he said.
