Nigerian midfield prodigy Daniel Daga, has set himself a two years target, within which he hopes to be at the top echelon of the football world.

He confirms to Nigeria Info that he has indeed received many offers from European clubs which he has been studying in order to be at the top like Victor Osimhen in just two years.

"Yeah, many clubs,” he tells our correspondent when asked about the clubs looking for his services.

“Many clubs apart from AC Milan, Liverpool, Anderlecht. Many other clubs are looking for me - Watford, Club Brugge, in Denmark, Midjyland.

“It’s true they are all looking me. But I'm not yet at the point because I'm looking for where I can play. Because in two years I'll be playing at the top like Osimhen."

He affirms that he sees himself playing at the biggest clubs in the world and winning everything at club football level within the next five years.

"I want to see myself playing at Real Madrid, Liverpool, Chelsea, Man City, Man Utd; play in the Champions League; play in the FA Cup, win the FA Cup and win Champions League in the next five years.

“Because I have the belief, the confidence and boldness that I'm going to be there in the next five years and I'll be playing in the Super Eagles.

"I know Nigerians want to see me in Super Eagles and I believe myself to play in the national team. It may not be the time I'll start playing yet but I believe 100 percent I'll play (for the) Super Eagles soon."

Daga, who was at the heart of Nigeria's midfield at the FIFA U20 World Cup said his target was to make a name like former Super Eagles captain, Mikel Obi did in 2005.

"I wanted to make a name like Mikel Obi but unfortunately it didn't work for me and the team in general. But all the same, we kept a good record playing in the quarterfinals.

“It's not easy play in the quarterfinals so I feel so glad to have been part of the team. In years to come, having in mind that I played the U20 world cup and in the quarterfinals, I'll be happy."
