Nigerian midfielder Eddy Onazi Ogenyi
English sides Liverpool and Everton have been handed a boost in the chase for Lazio midfielder Eddy Onazi.
The Nigerian international has been tracked by the two Premier League sides throughout the season after a series of impressive performances.
At 21-years-old, scouts from both sides have been to see him in action and believe his strength in the middle of the park would suit the English game.
And both managers have been handed a boost if they were to make a move after the youngster admits he would love to play in the Premier League.
“The Premier League in my future? I have always dreamed of being a professional footballer and here I am in Italy”, the midfielder said in an interview with Mtnfootball.com.
“Of course I would like to play in England, but we must keep our feet on the ground and worry about the present.”
Onazi has emerged through the youth side at Lazio and after making just eight starts last season, he has been a regular fixture in the side this season making 22 appearances.
