Liverpool and Tottenham are going head to head for Lazio midfielder Ogenyi Onazi this summer, and Metro reports that Spurs are hopeful to beat the Northwest title challengers to his signature.

Onazi, 21, is one of the top midfield prospects in Serie A which has attracted teams from the English Premier League.

Some Italian media outlets suggest that Liverpool have already made a bid for the Nigerian, but it sounds like Tottenham may have followed suit, or are about to.

Onazi is keen on making the switch to England, it’ll just be up to him which club fits him the best. His estimated transfer fee is said to be around £8m, but with more teams joining the race, stakes could be raised.

Tottenham’s Director of Football Franco Baldini is handling the negotiations on Spurs’ side for the box-to-box player.
