Bale’s Agent Hooks Onazi

Super Eagles midfielder,  Onazi Ogenyi,  will henceforth be managed by Jonathan Barnnet, the same football agent who is representing  the interest of  Tottenham Hotspur winger and Real Madrid target Gareth Bale, Complete Sports can confirm.

According to Lazionews24, Barnett, who is  a top executive of Stellar Football, is  one of the top agents in European football and was responsible for transfer of some top football stars from across Europe to the English Premier League.

And with him now in charge of the Nigeria international, his dream of playing in the EPL may soon see the light of the day- though that may not be possible in the current summer transfer window.

Just last year, top EPL teams like Tottenham and Everton made enquiries on the availability of the 21- year-old former My People FC star, but their request was promptly turned down by his current club Lazio. His  contract with the Rome-based side will not run down until June 2016.

However,with the new development, Onazi’s move to England may happen as early as during January transfer according to the report.
