Onazi Focusing On Wedding Not Transfer – Agent

Ifada Johnson, the agent of Nigeria and SS Lazio of Italy midfielder, Ogenyi Onazi, has revealed that the player is focused on how to organize a befitting wedding ceremony in June and not the transfer market.

It will be recalled that the Nigerian international was linked with moves to Trabzonspor, Swansea City and Everton during the January transfer window.

Onazi will marry his fiancée, Miss Sandra Ogunsuyi, in Lagos on June 18 and everything is being put in place to ensure the success of the ceremony.

Afterwards, it would be a proper honeymoon for the lovebirds whose pre-wedding pictures have been published by several high profile blogs and celebrity gossip sites since April.

Johnson revealed that their focus at the moment is to pull off a grand ceremony before any thoughts of a potential move.

“Right now, his wedding is the primary thing that needs attention. Hopefully, when the season ends, we will look in that direction,” Johnson told Goal.com.

Consequently, the player may not be keen on a place in Nigeria’s Olympics squad after his initial interest.

“I spoke with Samson Siasia and it will be another chance for me to represent my country to achieve something important, for my country and for myself as well. I will be glad to be part of the [Olympic] team,” Onazi said in April.

Onazi scored twice in all 20 appearances for Lazio as the Serie A side finished eighth during the 2015/16 season.

He has been called up for the Super Eagles pair of international friendlies against Mali and Luxembourg later this month.
