A bid is not said to be imminent from our findings, but he is closely been watched with regards‎ to a move in the future , and his agent failed to deny or confirmed the story when we asked him of Liverpool’s interest in his client.

” Awaziem is a good player, but he belongs to FC Porto, maybe you can ask them if there has been talks. Although I know contact was made with some teams in England but that was a long time ago and it wasn’t even Liverpool “, Babawo Mohammed told Owngoalnigeria.com.

” I’m not aware of any meeting with a scout from Liverpool but this is football, where anything can happen especially when you talking about a player, who has all it takes to be a star in a not too distant future”.
