Nigeria youth international John Lazarus is back in Nigeria after failing to secure a deal with Torino, where he spent over three weeks on trial with the Serie A side.
Lazarus returned to Nigeria days ago and according to sources close to the Nigeria U-17 World Cup winner, he wasn’t offered a deal by the team that currently has Joel Obi on it’s book.
The right full back reportedly absconded from the camp of Portuguese side Boavista where he was earlier suppose to undergo trial, and opt to try out with Torino.
His next step is yet unknown but reports has it that he could be set for another trial with an unnamed team in Slovenia, if all goes according to plan.
” It didn’t work out for him at Torino but hopefully he will leave in December for another trial with a team in Slovenia. He is a good lad he will get a club”, a source close to the forward told Owngoalnigeria.com
