The Nigeria international midfielder has been closely linked with a move to Roma over the past week following EsEs technical director confirming interest Bahadır Ünalan.

Ünalan also denied interest from Turkish league champions Galatasaray who have also been closely linked with the 25-year-old midfielder.

“There have been no offers from Galatasaray but we do have an offer from Roma and talks are ongoing,” he told Radyospor.

Lawal joined Eskişehirspor from Mersin Idmanyurdu last February for €1 million.

The central midfielder has two assists and two goals in all competitions for EsEs last season. The Nigerian international made a total of 30 appearances and averaged a 6.88 rating according to Whoscored.

EsEs finished last season in 11th place on 39 points and are managed my Michael Skibbe.
