Ipswich Town and Luton are said to be interested in Concord Rangers striker Temi Babalola.
Babalola, 19, is 6ft 4ins and plays on the right hand side for National League South outfit Concord.
He trained with Luton in September and featured in an U21’s game, while Town are said to be interested in offering Babalola a trial.
The teenager, who’s scored three goals in 13 games for Concord, told allnigeriasoccer.com: “They are both very good clubs, two different levels - one of them plays in League One, one of them plays in the Championship.
“It would be nice to play in the Championship, get good number of appearances but sometimes it is not all about the level.

“Most people don’t expect it when they see a 6ft 4in player but I am very good on the ball, I am mobile and I get goals, it’s one part of my game, I love scoring.
“I score a lot of goals with my feet, I am always in the right place at the right time, I’d love to score more goals with my head but it doesn’t really matter as long as I get the goals.”
