Eddy Onazi: The Nigerian Powerhouse To Rescue Liverpool's Season

It's no secret Liverpool aren't the team they were this time last year. With no bite up front (ahem) and Gerard looking a shadow of his former self, Rodgers knows some desperate new blood is needed in the spine of the team.

Enter Lazio's impressive Nigerian midfielder Ogenyi 'Eddy' Onazi, a player who has caught the attention of many clubs across the continent, including Mersey rivals Everton. Desperate for a bullish midfielder more than most, Liverpool need to pip the Toffees to the post and snap up the 22-year-old.

A terrific reader of the game and a tidy passer, he's also got blistering pace - as showcased by the time when he chased down a mugger in Rome and held him until the police came. More than capable of snagging a few pesky attacking-midfielders, we guess.
