Italian Serie B club Brescia has announced the signing of Nigeria U20 international Orji Okonkwo from Serie A side Bologna.
The former Football College of Abuja joins them on loan until June 30, 2018, with the club obtaining an option to buy the player at the end of the season.
The youngster scored 3 goals in 10 Serie A matches while playing for Bologna and was the second most efficient striker in the Italian top-flight in the first half of the season.
Orji became the youngest Nigerian scorer in Europe’s top five leagues this season, after finding the net against Sassuolo in September, aged 19 years 8 months and 5 days after Swansea striker and Chelsea loanee Tammy Abraham (19 years 10 months and 24 days) and Wolfsburg’s Felix Uduokhai (20 years 1 month and 13 days).
