It’s been a difficult last few years for Onazi who was out for the majority of 2019 due to a knee injury. The Super Eagles star only joined Denizlispor from Trabzonspor in January, but he made just seven appearances in all competitions for the Turkish club.
Should he join Red-Star, Onazi will get the chance to play in the UEFA Champions League next season following Red Star’s title victory in Serbia’s top division.
The Red-Whites defended their Super Liga title successfully, finishing 14 points clear of Partizan Belgrade.
