French Ligue 1 side OGC Nice have reportedly indicated interest in signing Super Eagles goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa.

According to SCORENigeria, Mamelodi Sundowns of South Africa, as well as Israeli clubs Maccabi Haifa and Hapoel Tel Aviv, are also eyeing a possible move for the hitherto FC IfeanyiUbah Shot stopper

Ezenwa’s contract with the Anambra Warriors expired at the end of last season and the free player is now open to offers; especially from abroad.

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.”

Ezenwa 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.
