The agent of rumoured Swansea City target Ogenyi Eddy Onazi has said that the Nigeria international is 'considering' a move from Lazio.
Swansea were said to be preparing a €5 million bid yesterday as new Head Coach Francesco Guidolin looks to bolster his squad and replace £12 million Newcastle United man Jonjo Shelvey.

Onazi is represented by compatriot and ex-Lazio striker Stephen Makinwa.
Makinwa said: The situation hasn’t changed much, He’s a valuable player, it’s normal to have a lot of interest. We’re considering things, there still isn’t a concrete offer.
Onazi has made only six Serie A appearances in the 2015/16 campaign, and is said to fear he will lose his Nigeria place if he does not find first team football.

Makinwa said: He’s tied to the environment in Rome, but he’s young and wants to play and have space, like all footballers. He wants to stay in the Nigeria team, he wants to do well: he’d like to do it with Lazio, but if that’s not possible then it’s better to try with a different team.
