NIGERIA have stepped up their efforts to lure Bukayo Saka away from the England team.
The Arsenal star, 18, has represented the Three Lions at youth level – but remains torn over where his international future lies.
Saka is eligible to play for England or Nigeria as he was born in London and has Nigerian parents.
The Daily Mail claim Nigeria are prepared to fast-track Saka into their first-team.
But he has played for England at Under-16, Under-17, Under-18 and Under-19 levels.
And he is on track to break into Gareth Southgate’s senior squad following his remarkable spell of form.
The 18-year-old, who will wear a new number next season, has been a regular in Mikel Arteta’s side.
He has made 27 appearances in the Premier League this season, scoring one goal.
In December, the Arsenal star revealed he was torn between playing for England or Nigeria.
He told BBC Sport: “I am always thinking about it, but I haven’t made a decision yet.”
