Nigeria’s Bright Osayi-Samuel’s dream of playing Champions League football seems to have gone down the drain as his club, Queens Park Rangers have reportedly rejected a £3 million bid from Belgian champions Club Brugge for the youngster.
According to Birmingham live, the Nigerian-born pacy winger has tickled the fancy of Belgian champions as they look to bolster their squad for next season’s UEFA Champions League.
Osayi-Samuel was born in Benin, Nigeria, before moving with his family to Spain. The family later moved to England when he was ten years old, settling in Woolwich, London.
He made his professional debut for Blackpool on March 7, 2015, in a 0–1 home defeat to Sheffield Wednesday.
Osayi-Samuel left Blackpool in 2017 to join Queens Park Rangers.
The 22-year-old forward has been one of the English Championship club’s best players this season.
He has just one year left on his current contract and has recently been linked with moves to the premier league with West Ham and Norwich leading the charge to sign him.
Brugge were hopeful they could entice Osayi-Samuel to Belgium with the attraction of champions league football next season.
It is not confirmed yet if Club Brugge will make another bid for the talented 22-year old.
He has since scored 10 goals in 84 appearances for QPR and has enjoyed his most productive season to date during the 2019/20 campaign, netting six times in 32 games.
