Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Turk­ish cham­pi­ons Be­sik­tas have con­tacted Ital­ian club Lazio for Nige­ria mid­fielder Ogenyi Onazi, AfricanFoot­ball.com can ex­clu­sively re­veal.

Be­sik­tas al­ready have an­other Nige­ria in­ter­na­tional, Ken­neth Omeruo, on loan for the new sea­son, while me­dia re­ports have sug­gested Chelsea mid­fielder Mikel Obi is also wanted by the Is­tan­bul gi­ants.

“This week, Be­sik­tas have made an of­fi­cial en­quiry for Onazi and it is now left to be seen if they will ac­cept a bid for the player,” a top source in­formed only AfricanFoot­ball.com.

Two years ago, 23-year-old Onazi signed a con­tract ex­ten­sion with Rome club Lazio till 2018, but it is widely be­lieved to have been a lit­tle im­prove­ment on a rather poor deal.

It was about the time he was be­ing scouted by sev­eral top clubs in­clud­ing Premier League club Liver­pool.
