Wenger wants Uche's number.

While we are still gawking and wondering how Nigeria beat France, more positive fallout has come out of that game.

According to Kickoff Nigeria, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said that he may be asking for Ike Uche's number after watching the striker do a series of fine moves on the French defence as the Super Eagles ran out with a surprise 1-0 win over Les Blues on Tuesday night.

Wenger was a co-commentator on the live game for French TV TF1 and was hugely impressed by the Getafe man's showing at the Stade Geoffrey-Guichard.

"What’s his name again? Ikechukwu Uche. I should ask for his phone number," Wenger said on TF1.

Wenger continually praised the 25-year-old Uche for the duration of the game and Ike's elder brother Kalu has told Setanta Sports that his sibling would not be averse to a Premier League

Knowing Wenger, he just might pull it off. And I think Uche will not complain if he's tapped!
