Swansea Ready to replace Shelvey with Onazi

Ogenyi-Onazi

The Nigerian midfielder may be heading to the Premier league in this January transfer window if the reports making the rounds are true.

Having offloaded Jonjo Shelvey to Newcastle United, Swansea risks looking a little light in midfield as the Welsh side look to keep their heads above the water in the Premier League.

New coach, Francesco Guidolin, is understood to be an admirer of Onazi and is reportedly keen on signing the Nigeria international, who would bring dynamism and energy to the Swans midfield.

Meanwhile, Lazio is demanding €7 million for the player, which could represent a fair deal for the 23-year-old with both international and European experience.
