Chelsea loan star Tammy Abraham is enjoying a prolific season at Bristol City, and his season got even better after bagging a brace on his first start for the England under-21's in their 5-0 victory over Bosnia.
The 19-year-old was called up to Aidy Boothroyd's side following his exploits for City in the Championship. While he continues to garner attention for his performances, it appears the Nigerian FA are keeping tabs on the talented frontman.
The Super Eagles are attempting to lure Abraham away from England to represent Nigeria. NFF president Amaju Pinnick cites his bond with the players father from their shared past in the Nigerian city of Warri should be enough to secure his switch of allegiance.
What's more, former Manchester City and Sunderland defender Nedum Onuoha has expressed his desire for Abraham to link up with the likes of Man City's Kelechi Iheanacho and Arsenal's Alex Iwobi.
"I don't know Tammy personally, I might know him a bit better after Tuesday, but it has to be his decision. If that is something that he wants to do - and that is in his blood - and it is the right thing to do, then he will do it. And I am sure he will do very well."
The ex-Premier League defender will come face-to-face with the red hot striker on Tuesday night as QPR host Bristol City.
