Super Eagles vice captain, Ogenyi Onazi may likely leave his Turkish side, Trabzonspor this summer despite his manager's plea for him to remain at the club next season, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.


Onazi has been attracting interest of clubs in Italy and in Spain, according to reports in Turkish dailyfanatik.com.tr. ‎but Trabzonspor manager, Ersun Yanal is desperate to keep Onazi.


Completesportsnigeria.com gathered from one of Onazi representatives that the 24 year old, barring any last minute hitch, will join a top team in Europe this off season.‎


"He is most likely going to leave this summer, not for China, but to a team in the top leagues," a close source revealed to Completesportsnigeria.com ‎


Yanal signed the 24 year old last summer for a reported fee of €3.5m from Lazio and has been pleased with his performance for the Black Sea team in his debut season.


The Nigeria international scored twice and provided one assist in 38 games last season.


"I am very pleased with him (Onazi)," Yanal told Turkish daily fanatik.com.tr when asked about the future of the former Lazio midfielder.


"I want him to stay in the team. I always gave him a chance and I will continue to give him. He is a very important part of my system."
