Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr says Nigeria has approached Queens Park Rangers midfielder Eberechi Eze to play for the three-time African champions.
The 21-year-old has been in fantastic form for QPR in the Sky Bet Championship this season and has scored six goals in 14 league appearances for the Londoners.
Eze who is born to Nigerian parents, trained with the Super Eagles in October 2017 but later featured for the England’s U-20 side.
Rohr said the player has been approached.
“We have approached him, but not directly. Tunde Adelakun, my assistant, spoke to his mum. What we understand is that there is a lot of pressure on him and Ebere Eze doesn’t want to give an
answer now,” Rohr told veteran journalist, Osasu Obayiwana in an interview.
“We would love to have him in the @NGSuperEagles, of course! We continue to work on getting him. It may take some time.”
Eze was called up to the England U-21 squad in September by manager Aidy Boothroyd for the UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifiers against Turkey and Kosovo. He was an unused substitute on both occasions.
