    If the reports coming from Torino news outlet Toro, is to be believed, then Super Eagles midfielder Joel Obi might be playing in the Spanish La Liga next season.
   The skillful midfielder was a key member of FC Torino last season but injury affected his inclusion in the team towards the tail end of the campaign which prompted the team into considering offers for him.
   The Spanish team which escaped the drop last season is presently looking for ways to strengthen the team ahead of the new season.
   Torino has placed a £5 million tag on the player, but the La Liga side has entered negotiations table with them.
   Apart from Celta Vigo, Portuguese giants FC Porto and Sporting Lisbon have also shown interest in the player.
    Obi was part of the Nigeria Super Eagles that played in the ongoing Russia 2018 World Cup but failed to taste action till the team crashed out.
