Rangers star forward Chisom Egbuchulam is now closing in on a transfer to Sweden after a botched move to Tunisia.
“We are now considering a year’s loan for Chisom with a Swedish club and thereafter he could sign a three-year contract,” said his representative Igwe Okolo, himself a former Rangers star.
He is expected in Abuja this week to begin processing his travel papers to Sweden.
Egbuchulam, who scored 16 goals last season as Rangers emerged champions after a 32-year wait, was in Tunisia recently but was eventually not given a contract by either Etoile du Sahel or Club Africain.
It was a further understood that he has not returned to Rangers as they were not forthcoming on giving him a six-month loan deal.
The left-footed Egbuchulam could play as a winger or a forward. He is technically good, packs a good shot and knows his way to goal.
