Sunderland eyes Joel Obi



English Barclays Premier League club, Sunderland are reportedly swooping for Inter Milan midfielder, Joel Obi.

Obi, 21, valued at €5 million, is now a subject of a January transfer move from The Black Cats, according to Football Italia.

However, Sunderland could also consider an option to take the youngster on loan till the end of the season.

It is believed that Sunderland manager, Martin O'Neill, is looking at adding the Nigerian international to his team owing to versatility.

The youngster has had to endure a slow start to the season with Inter Milan owing to an injury.

A departure from Italy could offer the Super Eagles' midfielder, who missed out on Nigeria's Africa Cup of Nations provisional squad, a lifeline to his career.

Obi has made just one Serie A appearance for the Nerazzurri this term.
