Nigeria midfielder, Rabiu Ibrahim is reportedly in the searchlight of English Premier League side, Sunderland.
The 20-year-old playmaker, who parted ways mutually with PSV Eindhoven is a transfer target of Sunderland manager, Martin O’Neill.
But Sunderland face a stiff battle from another EPL side, Liverpool, who have also listed the former Gateway FC midfielder as a target in the winter transfer window.
O’Neill’s has seen his side pick up just seven points from four games and the Sunderland gaffer wants to strengthen the side this January.
Rabiu’s agent, Tony Harris, told SuperSport.com that no decision has been made on the transfer talk linking his client to both EPL clubs.
The English agent said Rabiu’s talent keeps catching the attention of top European clubs in spite of setbacks he has suffered in his career.
He also explained to SuperSport.com that the decision to terminate the contract with the Eredivisie side, PSV was “purely hierarchy and perspective driven.”
