Stephen Odey identified as Taiwo Awoniyi’s potential successor at Union Berlin

Awoniyi has been tipped to leave in the summer transfer window after having an excellent season which has seen him net eighteen goals in all competitions.

German Bundesliga side, Union Berlin have identified Stephen Odey, a Nigerian international, as a possible successor for Taiwo Awoniyi.

Awoniyi has been tipped to leave in the summer transfer window after having an excellent season which has seen him net eighteen goals in all competitions.

Anthony Ujah, another Nigerian international striker on Union Berlin’s books, has two months left on his contract, and it seems doubtful that it will be renewed.

Union Berlin have already begun their search for Awoniyi’s successor and have identified Odey as a possible transfer target. AllNigeriaSoccer reported. 

The former NPFL youngster will however not go for a very cheap valuation, with Randers hoping to get 4.5 million euros for him (approximately N2b in Nigerian currency).

Odey has made 29 appearances in all competitions since joining Randers last summer, scoring 13 goals and providing two assists in that time.

The East Jutland club has a deal with the 24-year-old until June 30, 2024.

Iheanacho, Ndidi and Odey shine as Leicester City defeat Randers

Five Nigerians were involved from the start in yesterday’s second leg. Wilfred Ndidi, Kelechi Iheanacho, and Ademola Lookman started for the Premier League side, while Tosin Kehinde and Stephen Odey were on the pitch for Randers.

Leicester City advanced to the round of 16 of the inaugural UEFA Europa Conference League. They did so with relative ease, defeating Randers 7-2 over two legs.

Within two minutes of the kickoff, Leicester City had taken the lead after Ndidi found Harvey Barnes, who curled a right-footed shot into the far corner – the club’s fastest goal in European competitions.

Leicester City led 6-1 on aggregate after a magnificent goal from James Maddison in the 70th minute. He scores again four minutes later, courtesy of an assist from Kelechi Iheanacho.

Odey had been denied on several occasions due to incredible stops by Danish goalkeeper, Kasper Schemeichel. He ultimately got his goal in the 83rd minute when he took advantage of an error by Schmeichel to tap the ball into the unguarded net.

Kehinde’s game on the other hand came to an abrupt end in the closing minutes. He was stretchered off the pitch after being fouled by Ndidi, who received a yellow card for the challenge.

Kehinde has since recovered fully from the knock and is available for Randers’ next league game, against Nordsjaelland on Sunday.

Zaidu Sanusi should start on the left side of Porto’s defense barring any last-minute changes.

Barcelona vs Napoli (Victor Osimhen)

This is Victor Osimhen’s chance to make more headlines. The hardworking striker will look to add to his ten goals already this season, including four in the group stage.
