President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Amaju Pinnick says the body will not beg Arsenal youngster Bukayo Saka to play for the Super Eagles, Completesports.com reports.

Saka, 18, has been turning heads since making his first-team debut for the Gunners in 2018 under former manager Unai Emery.

The versatile winger, who has been with the North London club since he was seven-years old has impressed with his trickery, dribbling skills and eye for a killer pass.

Though he has represented England at U-16, U-17, U-18 and U-19 levels, Saka remains eligible to play for Nigeria at senior level.

Super Eagles head manager Gernot Rohr recently stated that players must first show interest in playing for the three-time African champions before an invitation can be extended to them.

Pinnick insists there are a lot of talented players , who are willing to represent the country and the NFF won’t persuade Saka to switch allegiance.

“There are many players that play like Bukayo Saka in Nigeria. We don’t want to go begging any player,” Pinnick stated in an Instagram live chat on Thursday.

Saka will remain at the Emirates Stadium for the foreseeable future after committing to the Gunners earlier this month.
