Transfer: Super Eagles star, Obi close to Serie A switch


Chievo are close to agreeing to a deal for Torino midfielder, Joel Obi.

Gazzetta dello Sport reports that the Super Eagles star could have his medical with the Serie A side today, Saturday.

Obi, whose contract is due to expire in June 2019, is expected to sign a three-year contract at the Stadio Bentegodi.

The Nigeria international who has spent his career in Italy, joined Torino in 2015 after a short temporary spell with Parma.
