Nigeria defender, Tyrone Ebuehi, is set to join Serie A club, Empoli, on a permanent deal.
Ebuehi spent last season on loan at another Serie A club, Venezia, from Benfica.
Paolo Zanetti, the Empoli manager, who took the versatile defender to Venezia last season, is keen on a reunion with the player.
The 26-year-old has struggled with persistent injuries since his move to Benfica in 2018.
Ebuehi, however, missed the entire 2018-19 campaign after picking up an injury in training.
The left-back spent the 2020/21 season on loan at Eredivisie club FC Twente.
He was part of Nigeria’s squad for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
