Bayern In Advanced Talks With Nigerian Young Forward

Bayern Munich are reportedly progressing in discussions to land young Arsenal prodigy Chido Obi-Martin after the 16-year-old rejected a scholarship renewal offer.

Obi-Martin netted an incredible 32 goals in 18 Premier League 2 games in the academy this season and has already bagged 10 goals in 14 U-17 Denmark caps.

The 16-year-old scored in each of his final nine league games this term, netting seven times in a 9-0 thrashing of Norwich City in April. That was the fifth time he had scored four or more goals in a single match this term.

Martin-Obi scored twice at the U-17 European Championships over the past month as Denmark made the semi-finals and so, with international games included, he has recorded 43 goals in 42 outings.

According to Academy Scoop via Football.london, Bayern have taken advantage of a breakdown in talks between Arsenal and the player, and are advancing in talks
