Liverpool fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are still feeling a little sad after they all but through their Premier League title dreams away but manager Brendan Rodgers certainly isn’t moping around.
The former Swansea City boss is already weighing up a number of potential candidates ahead of their Champions League campaign next season and it’s believed that Ogeni Onazi is one of them.
The Daily Star claim that Lazio have slapped a £10 million price tag on the Nigerian international’s head after hearing about the interest.
The Italians hope that it will be enough to scare off any potential suitors but it seems unlikely that Liverpool will give up especially as they targeted the 21-year-old in January.
But Liverpool aren’t the only Premier League side to be weighing up a move for the youngster with Tottenham Hotspur also said to be interested in the central midfielder.
The North London club may not have decided who they want to manager their club next season but it hasn’t stopped them from looking at potential signings ready for next season.
Spurs technical director Franco Baldini has strong links to Serie A having spent two spells at giants Roma.
