Twente, three other clubs want Swiss-Nigerian goalkeeper

Dutch club, Twente alongside Nijmegen, Thun and Grasshoppers are interested in Swiss-Nigerian goalkeeper, Sebastian Osigwe this summer, according to SportingLife.

The 27-year-old Super Eagles goalie joined Swiss side, Lugano from SC Kriens on a three-year deal last season but made only nine league appearances for the club in his debut campaign.

However, the former Switzerland junior international who switched allegiance to Nigeria is keen on more playing time at club level to help his chances with the Super Eagles. He got invited to the national team in October 2020 but yet to make a competitive debut for the 3-time African champions.

“Sebastian may change clubs this summer as there are four clubs interested in signing him,” the Lugano star was quoted as saying my SportingLife.

“He is a very ambitious lad and used to playing regularly for his former club but has not enjoyed enough playing time at Lugano. He is focused on the 2021/22 season but nothing is certain. A good offer may force the club to let him go but for him, playing regularly is the key.”

Twente finished 10th last season, conceding a whopping 50 goals in the process and desperately want to fix the goalkeeping position while newly promoted Nijmegen want the experience of Sebastian to help them with a solid campaign next season.

Thun lost out to Lugano last summer in the race to sign the Nigerian and would like another chance to get him on their books. Grasshoppers, interestingly, won the Swiss Challenge League to gain promotion to the Swiss Super League and set their target on Sebastian to help provide competition in the goalkeeping department for the 2021/22 season.

Sebastian was not listed for action on Sunday as Lugano lost 2-0 to FC Zurich at the Cornaredo Stadium on the opening day of the season.
