Nigeria To Make Approach For Talented Chelsea Attacking Midfielder Tushaun Tyreece-WaltersNigeria are set to make an approach for Chelsea wonderkid Tushaun Tyreece-Walters in their bid to win the race for his services at international level ahead of England.

Born in London seventeen years ago, Tyreece-Walters is eligible to represent Nigeria's youth teams, the Flying Eagles and Dream Team, through his mother but it is understood that the attacking midfielder's allegiance is with his country of birth, England, so the Nigerian Federation have to sweet talk him to choose Nigeria.

''Tyreece-Walters is eligible to play for England and Nigeria, his mom is Nigerian,'' a top source told allnigeriasoccer.com.

''He is on England side now but when we approach him and his representatives we will know where his future lies.''

Tushaun Tyreece-Walters was handed a short-term contract by Chelsea in August 2017 following a successful trial.

Before joining the Premier League champions, he had spells at Tottenham Hotspur and Abbey Rangers.

This season, Tyreece-Walters has appeared in 12 matches for Chelsea U18s in the U18 Premier League, including Friday's 4-1 win at Brighton, scoring once against Leicester City.

He has no caps for England's youth teams.
