Tottenham supporters in The Football Transfer Tavern have raised their pints to the latest transfer news arriving from Metro.
The paper claims that Spurs remain confident that they can fend off competition from Liverpool to sign highly-rated Lazio midfielder Ogenyi Onazi at the end of the season.
The Nigerian international has really stood out this season according to our Serie A expert and Premier League scouts have been flocking to watch the 21-year-old in action.
While Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is thought to hold a key interest in the dynamic midfield man, it is now understood that Spurs’ director of football Franco Baldini has made initial contact with the Stadio Olimpico outfit.
The news comes after Onazi revealed that he wants to play in England in the near future with Lazio resigned to losing their talented youngster as they try to facilitate a bidding war between the Premier League rivals.
Baldini has a close working relationship with Lazio and is believed to value the starlet at around £8 million as Spurs look to strengthen again this summer.
Will this Lazio star be gracing the Premier League in August? Let us know your thoughts below.
