“A lot has happened in the last 72 hours and Club Africain are now being seriously challenged by Etoile du Sahel who are willing to offer more in terms of wages” He told owngoalnigeria.com.
“His agent Babawo Mohammed has got close ties with Etoile du Sahel so that might give them an edge but before leaving Tunisia last week with another player Lukman Zakari he made a pledge to bring Lazarus to Club Africain”.
The flying full back and his agent will now study contract proposals from both teams before deciding on which is best for his career but financially and otherwise.
Lazarus a world cup winner with the Nigeria U-17 team was reportedly on the radar of Anderlecht of Belgium but the move failed to materialise meaning a move to Tunisia is he is surestbet for now.
