Nigeria international midfielder Ogenyi Onazi has claimed that not less than 10 clubs are interested in his penmanship.
The Super Eagles ace, 22, was heavily linked with a move to the English Premier League, with Liverpool and West Ham United reported to be among the front-runners for his services.
Onazi, who joined Lazio in 2011, signed an improved four-year deal in September which includes a €10m release clause. But having racked up just 568 minutes of first-team appearances this season with an assist in 14 Serie A matches, talks of a move away from Naples continues to drag on.
“I was approached by more than 10 clubs, but I am a Lazio player,” he told World Soccer Magazine. “I’m still young, I want to grow and play in European competitions. In life you have to take one step at a time.”
Onazi has 26 Nigeria caps and has been invited for next week’s international friendly with Uganda, as well as subsequent game away in South Africa on Sunday, 29 March.
