Nnambi Ofoborh: a move to Rangers might enhance his Super Eagles prospects

News making the rounds indicate that Leon Balogun's Glasgow Rangers are interested in possibly signing former Nigeria youth International Nnamdi Ofoborh.

I pray this move materialises. I watched Nathan Ofoborh play as a centre back for Bournemouth against Manchester City in September 2020 in the EFL Cup competition.

He performed his duties competently with sharpness and fluidity. His performances on the night caught the eye.

Although he is predominantly a centre midfielder by trade, feelers from Rangers suggest that Coach Stephen Gerrard is looking to utilize him as a centre defender if the transfer sees the light of day.

According to, Rangers centre-back George Edmundson – who has struggled for game time – would go further down the pecking order and might have to look for a new club if Rangers sign Ofoborh.

A Nigeria ex-Youth international, Nathan Ofoborh will be looking to be in the fray for Super Eagles consideration once he starts playing more regularly in club football.

Unfortunately, he is not seeing much action in Bournemouth; he will be expected to play more games if he moves to Scotland.

He is a combative midfielder with an eye for picking out decent passes. He is fluid and puts himself about. He is also versatile.

It will be great if the transfer goes ahead.
