After a long spell with Lazio before heading out for stints with a handful of Turkish teams, there are strong indications that Super Eagles midfielder Ogenyi Onazi is set to join newly-promoted Italian side Crotone.
According to reports monitored by FCNaija in the Italian media, the 27-year old should complete his move as a free agent to Crotone within the next 48 hours.
Tuttomercatoweb even reports that Crotone could close the negotiations Onazi by Wednesday.
The trusted Italian news outlet claims contacts started between the parties already in July, but in the last hours, there has been an acceleration that could prove decisive.
Onazi parted ways with Denizlispor last month with one game to play in the Turkish Super Lig and he is was initially reported to be on the verge of joining Partizan Belgrade this summer.
Onazi linked up Turkish Super Lig club Denizlispor on a one-and-half-year contract after leaving Trabzonspor.
He joined Trabzonspor from Italian outfit Lazio in August 2016 and made 79 league appearances for the club and scored seven goals.
Crotone found their way back to the elite division after finishing tops in Serie B with Nigerian striker Simeon Nwankwo emerging as the top striker in that division.
