The exit of Super Eagles midfielder Eddy Onazi frim Seria A side Lazio has paved the way for little known Nigerian teen Folorunsho Michael to take his spot.

Highly respected and regarded as one of the promising talent coming through the youth ranks in Italy, the 18 year old made the set up from the U-18s to the Primavera side last season.

He wasted no time in settling into his new surroundings, as he was rated among the best players for the B team of Lazio, in the course of their campaign in the youth league last season.

If he continues his steady progress through the youth ranks of Lazio, his international future could spark a tug between Nigeria and Italy.

A midfielder by trade, he is eligible to represent both Nigeria and Italy at international level, but he is yet to be called up by any of the nations.
