Check Out Top 10 Nigeria Most Expensive Player Number 1 will Shock You Article

The Super Eagles striker has appended his
signature to a five-year contract with the Foxes,
with City expected to pocket a minimum 28
million euros in transfer fees, which will make
him the most expensive Nigerian player of all
time, surpassing the record currently held by former Watford star Odion Ighalo.


Before Ighalo had the honour of being the most
expensive Nigerian player, it was previously
held by ex-Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel for
eleven years after the Blues splashed out
€20m to secure his services from Lyn Oslo,
with Manchester United also compensated.

The third and fourth most expensive transfers
involving Nigerian players were completed in
the last thirteen months. Former Premier League champs Leicester City signed Ahmed Musa and Wilfred Ndidi for €19.5 million and €17.6 million respectively.

The costliest Nigerian defender in history is
Taribo West, thanks to his €12 million switch
from Auxerre to Inter Milan in June 1997. Thirteenth position currently belongs to Chelsea
right wing-back Victor Moses, who moved to
the Stamford Bridge outfit in 2012 from Wigan
Athletic for €11.5 million.
