OPINION: 7 Nigerian Footballers who are too good for their current clubs

When a Nigerian football player is not bigger than a club, we can say that some players are, well, too good for their teams. Think about big fish in small ponds.

7. Tosin Ayegun

Ayegun deserves a lot of credit for what he did for FC Zurich. He is less like a big fish in a small pond and more like a whale in a puddle.

The good news for clubs interested in Ayegun is that he is worth about €2.5 million, according to

6. Victor Moses

They keep the winger as one of Spartak Moscow's best players in all of their games. I like how he moves so quickly that he doesn't even notice the people who are blocking him.

Moses isn't even 30 yet. He plays for a team that is ninth in the Russian Premier League, but they have already made it to the Europa League knockout stages. This is a great country, so surely someone will take a risk and make the transfer gossipers of this fine land do a collective dealgasm. A lot of people have been waiting for a long time now.

5. Akinkunmi Amoo

In the Swedish Allsvenskan, there is no doubt that Amoo has done a good job for Hammarby in the league. If the league isn't the best, his record of 9 goals in 29 league games this season is impressive.

Now that he's 19, he's ready to be a star. If you want to buy him, Atlético Madrid, Leicester City, and Borussia Dortmund have all been linked to making a bid.

4. Raphael Onyedika

Onyedika was a replacement for Onyedika at Midtjylland. Onyedika took a while to get used to living in Denmark, but he started to show his skills at the start of this season.

Since then, he hasn't looked back. He has done better in the Danish Superligaen than he has ever done. Anybody would be willing to take a risk on a reliable, skilled, and hardworking Nigerian. They're all the rage, it seems.

3. Samuel Adegbenro

People in Nigerian football might not think much of Adegbenro. This season in the Swedish Allsvenskan was the best yet. He was the top scorer.

He scored 17 goals, helped two others, and played 2315 minutes. At least €1.2 million is now what he's worth.

2. Joe Aribo

Optimism is a happy emotion that can lift people out of the drudgery and monotony of everyday life. There was a poster in the halls of your college that said, "A smile is more powerful than any weapon."

Still, there are times when optimism turns into naivety, and that's not good. When you meet Joe Aribo, he's a Rangers player who should play in the English Premier League. As long as he has been consistent in the last two seasons, it's time to move him.

1. Emmanuel Dennis

Some English football fans may only know about Dennis' greatness because he has been linked to Arsenal for a long time at Club Brugge. It's not going to happen, I'm sorry.

In fact, he should be given a lot more credit than that. Afterward, the forward moved to Watford last summer. He didn't make the cut at Koln.

Dennis has been Watford's best player since August 2021. Since then, he has scored six Premier League goals, made five more assists, and set up more chances than any other player in the team. With a good side, he should get better.
