Sunshine Stars midfielder Ibrahim Yusuf could be set for a shock move to Rivers United.
The former Nigeria Premier League champions are targeting Yusuf as a replacement for Morice Chukwu.
It is believed that the Pride of Rivers have inquired about the availability of the talented midfielder.
Sunshine Stars could meet with Rivers United representatives to discuss the contract situation of the player.
Yusuf made over 15 appearances for Sunshine Stars last season and netted five times.
Rangers, Plateau United and Bayelsa United are also said to be in contact with the player representatives.
The Owena Waves failed to pick a continental ticket last season after coming fifth at the NPL Super Six playoffs in Lagos.
