EPL Clubs in Hot Chase of Obafemi Martins
Clubs in the English Premier Leagueare falling upon one another in hot chase of Nigeria’s in-form Obafemi Martins, who plies his trade in the MLS in the USA.
The Seattle Sounders’ sensational goal merchant has netted 40 goals and provided 23 assists, in three seasons, ending the 2014 season as runner up to the Most Valuable Player (MVP) title. Little wonder that the Lagos-born goal poacher has attracted New Castle United and Sunderland, both in the EPL, who are bent on having him signed for them howbeit on a short-term loan arrangement to bolster their drive to sharpen their attack.
Both managers are well aware of Martins capabilities and are not leaving any stone unturned to sign him up for their clubs.
