Swansea are weighing up a move for Almeria’s £3million-rated midfielder Ramon Azeez.
The 21-year-old was named Young Player of the Year at the La Liga club last term and capped a stellar season by being named in the Nigeria squad for the World Cup.
Azeez is a dynamic midfielder that has been highly-rated within the Super Eagles camp for some time now. And he featured for his country at the Brazil World Cup.
He began his career in the Almeria B team but after two terms of rapid improvement, he was promoted to the senior team.
Indeed, his game continued to blossom as he featured in over 30 games for the team, drawing showers of praise for his all-round midfield game.
Swansea are keen to inject some class and athleticism into their team, and with Azeez’s technical skills they know he will he fit seamlessly into their style.
Almeria have inserted a release clause in the midfielder’s contract but the Swans see that as value for money for a player that was voted the third best at the Under-17 World Cup in 2007, and captained Nigeria to the quarter-finals of the Under-20 competition three years later.
