Austrian – Nigerian starlet, Nosa Iyobosa Edokpolor, 17, might continue his career in the Italian championship, according to reports in the Austrian media.
The teenager,who was on the books of basement side FC Alpe Adria last season, is in advanced talks with Serie A campaigners Palermo, says meinbezirk.at.
Edokpolor would start his career with Palermo at the Primavera side before making a leap to the first team squad.
Curiously, the youngster was recently tested by Rapid Vienna and Wolfsberger AC, but was not considered good enough for a contract.
Palermo, who spotted Nosa Edokpolor during a pre-season friendly, are thought to have agreed a loan deal with FC Alpe Adria, with a purchase option inserted into the contract on expiration.
