The 19-year-old is in Nigeria’s provisional squad for the Rio Olympics in August, while he has also been capped at full international level in recent matches against Mali and Luxembourg.French Ligue 1 club Lorient are reportedly after the signature of Nigeria defender Musa Mohammed, who currently belongs to Turkish club Istanbul Basaksehir.


Mohammed still has two years left on his contract in Turkey, but is apparently being lined up by Lorient in a €2 million move.

According to a source quoted by African Football, Lorient are one of several clubs courting the promising young right-back, a former captain of the Nigeria U-17 and U-20 sides.

“Lorient are interested in Musa, but he has a number of other options this summer in Belgium and Germany and he could well move to another club during this window,” the source said.
