Onazi linked with January move to Turkey


Nigeria international Ogenyi Onazi maybe exiting the Serie A for a fresh stint in the Turkish Super Lig a report in tuttomercatoweb suggests.

Onazi who presently is with Rome-based club SS Lazio has been linked with a January move to one of the Turkish giants of Besiktas, Fenerbahce or Galatasary.

It is understood that the agent of the Super Eagles vice-captain, Ayodele Makinwa is expected to hold talks with the Biancocelesti over his client’s future.

“Eddy is fine now, he had a minor injury. He suffered a muscle strain in the national team, was out ten days. He returned immediately after the match against Saint Etienne, ” Makinwa told LaLazioSiamoNoi.it.

“We need to talk with the club, we want clarification. There are clubs who want him, we’re talking about a guy who has already racked up 39 appearances for Nigeria, who in 2014 played as a starter at the World Cup in in Brazil.”

The former Lazio striker added: “ He is wanted both in Italy and abroad. For him it would not be a problem finding another team. If the situation were to continue to be this, then we must find a solution.

“The possibility of a sale could also materialize. When a player does not feel important or does not feel the trust, it is easier than not unable to play and give what you would like.”

Onazi, who is under contract with Lazio until the summer of 2018 was formerly on the radar of English Premier League giants Liverpool after the 2014 World Cup but a transfer never materialized.
