Tottenham Hotspur have joined the race for Ogenyi Onazi and they are hopeful of signing the Lazio midfielder at the end of the season, according to a report on Metro.
This development comes just days after the Nigeria international confirmed his desire to play in the English Premier League.
Liverpool have been on the trail of the 21-year-old Super Eagles playmaker and coach Brendan Rodgers has already made it clear to the Naples club that he would make a bid this summer.
However, it’s thought that Spurs director of football Franco Baldini is plotting a transfer coup for Onazi, who has impressed with Lazio in the Serie A.
Lazio are though set to lose the midfielder, but will want to cash in some satisfactory amount on the player.
