We must confess that we’ve never heard of Michael Olunga. But he’s the best player in Kenya so there’s a chance that clubs with huge scouting systems are bound to know his name. Just in case, Olunga has offered his help.
Olunga, who has been capped by Kenya, plays as a striker for Gor Mahia in the Kenyan Premier League and claims to have scored 38 times this season. That’s an impressive tally for a 21-year-old. We’d imagine that scouts have been attracted to his prolific scoring but it would seem as though Arsenal talent spotters haven’t been alerted.
That’s because Olunga has made a personal request to Arsene Wenger to sign him for Arsenal. He says it would be a dream to play for the Gunners and promises that he wouldn’t let the veteran boss down.
See his plea below and his recent highlights in the video below that.
