27 June 2015, 13:41Soccer Laduma

Lagos - Super Eagles midfielder, Raheem Lawal has reportedly pulled interest from Italian Seria A club, AS Roma. 

The Nigeria international who star for Turkish club, Eskisehirspor has previously been mentioned in a link to another Turkish club, Galatasaray but Eskisehirspor's technical director, Bahadir Ünalan has given a proper hint on where a real interest is coming from. 

Raheem Lawal, 25, is a very hardworking midfielder, he's physical play, tackles and interception gives him an edge. Lawal moved to Eskisehirspor from Mersin Idmanyurdu for €1 million in February and has recorded two goals and another two assist in all competitions last season.

Raheem Lawal played an active role during Nigeria's failed quest to secure a ticket to the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) and helped his club, Eskisehirspor finished 11th in the log last season
