French Ligue 1 side OGC Nice, Mamelodi Sundowns of South Africa as well as Israeli clubs Maccabi Haifa and Hapoel Tel Aviv are among the clubs now in hot pursuit of Super Eagles goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa.


It was further learnt there are also interests from Egypt and Tunisia.

Ezenwa’s contract with FC Ifeanyiubah has expired and he has revealed he is a free player  and will be open to offers.

The goalkeeper’s agent and chief executive of Johannesburg-based Gzedsports Management Company, Godwin Emmanuel, said: “Yes, it is true that some clubs are showing interests in signing Ezenwa.

“We are not surprised anyway given the favour of God on him which has granted him the grace of great performances in recent times both for club and country but particularly in the World Cup qualifiers. “I cannot disclose the names of the clubs because there are other people working behind the scene for the success of Ezenwa.

“I can only tell you that we are waiting for divine direction on the next move for Ezenwa.”

Ezenwa simply said, “I am not thinking of where my next port of call will be. I have left it in God’s holy hands.

“My concern is to play football regularly and be happy.

“I want to remain focused and I pray for fitness at all times.”

The former Flying Eagles shot stopper has risen to be the country’s No 1 in the last two months, helping Nigeria to qualify for both the 2018 World Cup in Russia as well as the CHAN in Morocco, also next year.
