Hot on the heels of Sfaxien of Tunisia snapping up Nigeria U-17 World cup winner Lukman Zakari, another play from that same team might be heading to Tunisia.

Owngoalnigeria.com can authoritatively reveal that John Lazaruz who was earlier linked with a move to Esperance of Tunisia and Anderlecht of Belgium is Etoile du Sahel priority.

Etoile du Sahel are so keen on the player and according to leaks we gathered the deal might be swiftly done before the end of the month although it might drag into next month as his management are weighing up offers from Europe.

“We have offers from elsewhere but for now Club Africain are the ones putting pressure and pulling the stops to get him but in the coming days we will make a decision” a source told owngoalnigeria.com.

Lazaruz who played all of Nigeria’s game at the U-17 world cup is currently owned by Fosla Academy in Nigeria and he is expected to sign a pre contract with Etoile du Sahel just like Zakari did with Sfaxien if talks progressed nicely.
