Super Eagles goalkeeper Francis Uzoho is reportedly wanted by French side Stade de Reims.

According to football transfer expert Luca Bendoni, Uzoho has been penciled down as a replacement for Colorado Rapids-bound Patrick Pentz.

“Understand that Stade de Reims’s GK Patrick Pentz is “getting closer” to completing MLS move as per @UnionArdennais.

“Pentz is Colorado Rapids’ target – Francis Uzoho was on the list too, and now Reims are among the clubs looking at him,” Bendoni said in a tweet.

Another French Ligue 1 side Toulouse is also said to be interested in signing the Omonia Nicosia goalkeeper.

The 24 year-old’s contract with Omonia ends at the end of this season and the player will be open to potential transfer opportunities.

Uzoho announced himself to the word with a brilliant performance against Manchester United at Old Trafford last season.

He made a stunning 14 saves in the Europa league game and was named the man-of the-match despite Omonia losing 1-0.
