The 25-year-old currently plies his trade in the Nigeria Premier League with Warri Wolves, who are said to be willing to listen to offers for the towering centre-defender.

English Championship side Watford have also been credited with an interest in Egwuekwe, although the Hornets are unlikely to enter into a bidding war with Udinese.Due to the fact that the Super Eagles have not qualified for AFCON 2015, which kicks off in mid-January, both Udinese and Watford are expected to firm up their interest in the defender in the mid-season transfer window.
