Saka has been tipped to break into England’s squad following a breakthrough season with the Gunners but the Nigerian Football Federation has begun moves to see him feature for the Super Eagles instead.
The 18-year-old has already represented England at junior level and currently plays for the U-19 side. However, he is in line to be promoted to the U-21 at the very least.
However, Nigeria are prepared to fast-track Saka into their senior set-up, to play with the Super Eagles.
Their ploy to tempt Saka has taken a back seat in recent weeks owing to the long delay in international football due to coronavirus. But with national team matches due to return in September, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) will ramp up their efforts, with Saka still to make a final decision.
