Blues and Luton Linked With Concord Rangers Striker
Tuesday, 10th Nov 2020 11:36
Town are reported to have joined Luton in showing interest in Concord Rangers striker Temi Babalola.
The 19-year-old is trained with the Hatters in September and played in a friendly for their U21s, while the Blues are are said to have watched him extensively and are interested in inviting him for a trial.
"They are both very good clubs, two different levels - one of them plays in League One, one of them plays in the Championship," Babalola said when asked about the reported interest by allnigeriasoccer.com.
"It would be nice to play in the Championship, get good number of appearances but sometimes it is not all about the level.
"If you play at a team where you can express yourself and you can gain a lot of experience especially at a young age it's very good for you as well."
Babalola, an Arsenal supporter growing up, outlined his qualities as a player: "As a striker my attributes and strengths, I'd say I am very strong, I am fast, I am technically good.
"Most people don't expect it when they see a 6ft 4in player but I am very good on the ball, I am mobile and I get goals, it's one part of my game, I love scoring.
"I score a lot of goals with my feet, I am always in the right place at the right time, I'd love to score more goals with my head but it doesn't really matter as long as I get the goals.”
Babalola has played down the right-hand side for National League South side Concord, who he joined in February of this year signing a joint registration with Brentwood Town.
As a youngster he was with Woodford Town, for whom he scored 28 times in two seasons, and Romford.

Fans, media and pundits always seem to target the manager, even Bobby Robson was targeted in his time. However, he was rightly allowed four of five mediocre seasons before starting to make real progress.
They Shoot Horses, Don't They? by Theipswich
Given the circumstances in which we supporters find ourselves at our lowest point in 64 years and with a level of communication befitting Lord Lucan, I have penned an open letter to our president Marcus Evans, as I am certain I would not have the courtesy of a reply if I were to write to the club:
