Spanish La Liga giants Sevilla are reportedly interested in the signing of Super Eagles defender Chidozie Awaziem after the end of his loan spell at Leganes.
The 23-year-old Nigerian footballer played for Leganes at the just concluded Spanish La Liga 2019/20 season in which the club relegated to the second division.
But despite the relegation of Leganes from the first division, the Nigerian is rated among the best players for the season considering his superb performances.
Chidozie Awaziem is expected to make a return back to his parent club FC Porto in Portugal so as to join them for the preparation of next season.

According to AS, Sevilla are keen to extend the Nigerian’s stay in Spain beyond just this season as they have made a move to sign Awaziem who featured 26 times for Leganes in the La Liga.
This will be a great move for the Super Eagles defender as he will have the chance to play in the Champions League.
However, Chidozie Awaziem's dream will be to play for Real Madrid so to as to have the chance to be a teammate of his idol Sergio Ramos.
The Nigerian has stated many times that Sergio Ramos is his idol and he will be glad to play in the same team with the Spanish international.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Super Eagles goalkeeper Francis Uzoho left Deportivo La Coruna for a three-year move to Cypriot side APOEL FC in an incredible move for the Nigerian international.
Uzoho actually joined Deportivo in January 2019, but the Nigerian goalie was not given active playing time and was loaned to Anorthosis Famagusta.
And after spending six months at Famagusta, the Nigerian goalie returned to Deportivo, but was sent on loan again this time around to Omonia Nikosia.
The 21-year-old spent the whole of last season at Nikosia and was impressive in all the games he played for the side before he got injured.
Uzoho got injured while playing for the Super Eagles of Nigeria in an international friendly game against Brazil which ended 1-1.
