The number of people and clubs monitoring Sama Nomoko continues to grow. The 16-year-old player currently performs for Barcelona's U-18 youth team and exhibits outstanding results.

During his tenure with the U-17 squad, he delivered a stellar performance in the RO16 Cup against the BCN Sports Academy. In that match, Nomoko scored two goals, bringing his tally to ten goals, along with eight assists during this period. The Spanish press has already bestowed upon him the nickname "gazelle" for his incredible speed.

Barcelona's senior team is aware of the young forward's performance in the youth club. Bojan Krkić, a former Barcelona player and current director of the sports academy, personally attended the match to witness Nomoko's phenomenal game.

Considering the success of Lamine Yamal and Pau Cubarsí in the senior team, it can be inferred that another outstanding player of world-class caliber is being groomed in Barcelona's academy. Both of these players also came through Barcelona's sports academy but secured a stable place in the starting lineup of the Spanish champions at the age of 16. Despite their youth, Xavi Hernandez prefers them over more experienced players.
