Following the injury to Super Eagles midfield hardman Ogenyi Onazi, coach of the Super Eagles Gernot Rohr has been weighing up options to replace the Trabzonspor man who might likely not make the squad for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations .
Former Nigeria U17 trainee Innocent Bonke is one name that has been mentioned to the Franco-German coach owing to his good form for Swedish league giants Malmo FF.
The 23 year old has a similar style of play with Onazi but he passes better and his hold up play even when under pressure is also not too far off from that of Super Eagles captain John Obi Mikel.
With the 2019 Sweden League yet to get underway,Bonke who joined to the Swedish League from Norwegian side Lillestrom SK starred in the UEFA Champions League qualifiers and the Europa League group stage where he even captained the team against Hungarian side Vidi FC.
A box to box midfielder who covers lot of grounds , Bonke will no doubt be a perfect fit for the Super Eagles midfield if paired with Leicester City ace Wilfred Ndidi.
