FC Porto Nigerian defender Chidozie Awaziem was spotted in the company of a scout from Liverpool after their 5 – 0 win over Sunderland in the International Premier League Cup.

Awaziem nodded home the fifth goal for Porto in their big win at the stadium of light, but shortly after the game he was spotted with a scout from Liverpool. A team he was linked with recently.

Liverpool are reportedly keeping close watch on the 20 year old defender, who is a senior international for Nigeria owing to his meteoric rise to the first team of Porto in just 18 months.

Although he has failed to add to the 10 league appearances he made for the first team last season, Awaziem has played 35 games for the B team who are campaigning in the second division in Po‎rtugal.

He has a buy out clause of €20m inserted the contract ‎extension he signed with FC Porto last season after making his breakthrough.
