The Nigeria Football Federation and Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr are hoping to convince Bayern Munich scoring sensation Joshua Zirkzee to pledge his international future to the three-time African champions.

The Nigerian Federation and Rohr want Zirkzee to join the Super Eagles ranks and have started discussions with the player.

Born in Schiedam near Rotterdam, the former Feyenoord youth-teamer qualifies to represent the Super Eagles as he has a Nigerian parent.

The Dutch Football Association are believed to be in pole position ahead of their Nigerian counterparts for the services of Zirkzee given that he has been provisionally cap-tied to the European giants.
