Onazi subject of interest from English, Turkey and German clubs
31 December 2015, 15:34
Abuja - Ogenyi Onazi is considering a move away from SS Lazio during the January transfer window, reports in Italy have claimed.
The Nigeria international has struggled for game time this season, and has also only just recovered from injury, and is reported to be fed up with his lack of playing opportunities at the capital club, a development which is said to have prompted interests from several other clubs.
According to news reports in Italy, clubs in Germany, England, France and Turkey are monitoring the situation and are set to make offers once the January transfer window gets underway.

It is believed that Crystal Palace, Sunderland and Watford are amongst the English clubs interested in the 23-year old, while Bayer Leverkusen has also been mentioned in Germany.
Onazi was a subject of interest from Liverpool in the summer of 2014, before he signed a contract extension with Lazio for further two years.
It is believed he will favour a move to the Premier League, but reports suggest it is only Turkish clubs have made official inquiries of his availability.
Onazi won the Africa Cup of Nations with Nigeria in 2013, and also appeared at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
