Nwabali is currently Chippa United’s first-choice stopper in the Premier Soccer League, PSL.

Nwabali has played six matches so far and conceded just two goals against Equatorial Guinea and South Africa.

 

 

His heroics have given Super Eagles a chance in the continental competition, a tournament they last won in 2013.

Nwabali’s agent, Mohammed Lawal, has now hinted at a big move for the player.

“There is interest in France and Saudi Arabia. There is no surprise because of his performance during the Afcon tournament in Ivory Coast,” Lawal said as quoted by SNL24.

“I have only seen [Kaizer Chiefs links] in newspapers. I cannot comment on anything regarding local interest, please speak to the chairman of the club.”
