Promising Malaysia youngster to undergo trials at J.League club Cerezo Osaka

Rising Malaysia football youngster Luqman Hakim Shamsudin is set to undergo a training stint at J.League club Cerezo Osaka and could win a contract at the Japanese outfit if he impresses during the trials.

Luqman, 16 years old, caught the attention of many as he had finished the competition as joint top scorer in the 2018 AFC U-16 Championship held in Malaysia last year with five goals — the same number as Japan’s Shoji Toyama and Australia’s Noah Botic.

Sources have reported that the Japanese club, that have produced the likes of Shinji Kagawa, Takashi Inui and Takumi Minamino, are interested in taking a look at the Malaysian striker. Luqman has excelled and came through the ranks via the National Football Development Programme under caoch Lim Teong Kim.
