20-goal striker snubbed by Super Eagles boss becomes Pro League’s Most Valuable Player
  1. Gift Orban: The Nigerian Striker Making Waves in Europe

Gift Orban is a name that has been making waves in European football circles in recent months. The 20-year-old Nigerian striker has been on fire since joining KAA Gent in the Belgian Jupiler League in January, scoring an incredible 20 goals in just 22 competitive games.

His impressive form has not gone unnoticed, with some of Europe’s biggest clubs now reportedly interested in securing his services in the upcoming summer transfer window. In fact, according to Transfermarkt, Orban’s market value has skyrocketed to a staggering €20 million, making him the most valuable player in the highly competitive Belgian top flight.

Orban’s remarkable rise to prominence has been nothing short of sensational. Since his arrival in Belgium on transfer deadline day, he has consistently impressed, scoring four goals in a single game against Zulte Waregem in mid-March and achieving the fastest hat-trick in a European competition just days later.

His incredible form has seen him quickly establish himself as one of the most exciting young talents in European football, with his reputation now transcending national boundaries. However, with such interest from top clubs across the continent, it remains to be seen if KAA Gent will be able to retain his services beyond the summer transfer window.

Despite his impressive form, however, Orban was left out of the Super Eagles squad to face Sierra Leone in the Afcon qualifiers, drawing criticism from disappointed fans. Eagles boss Jose Peseiro has confessed that he snubbed Orban and fellow Nigerian striker Victor Boniface because of financial constraints and his preference for more established players.

  • While Orban may have been left out of the Super Eagles squad this time around, there is no doubt that his incredible rise to prominence in such a short period has firmly established him as one of the most exciting young talents in European football. And with interest from some of Europe’s biggest clubs, it seems that his star is only set to continue rising.
