According to reports exclusively gathered by Owngoalnigeria.com Portuguese side Portimonense have contacted FC Porto on the possibility of signing Chidozie Awaziem on loan.
Portimonense recently lost the services of their young Ghanaian defender Lumor Agbeyenu to German side 1860 Munich, and are looking to lure the Nigerian to plug the gap created by the departure.
Awaziem will help the team who are top of the second division in Portugal realise their dream of gaining promotion at the end of the season, but a deal is far from agreed with FC Porto.
Porto wants the youngster to remain with the team until the summer, even though he isn’t guaranteed games with the first team unlike last season when he had his breakthrough.
Second division side Portimonense will be hoping that FC Porto shift grounds particularly as they have strong ties with the club when it comes to Nigerian players.
Presently Chidera Ezeh and Fidelis Irhene are on loan with the team, while Musa Yahaya passed through them before ending at FC Porto last summer.
