Liverpool and Tottenham will go head-to-head in the summer in the race to sign Lazio starlet Ogenyi Onazi.

Onazi, 21, has been a revelation for the Serie A outfit this season and has been attracting the interest of a host of European clubs, with Liverpool and Spurs leading the chase.

And according to reports in Italy, Lazio have placed a £10m price-tag on the Nigerian international to stave off the interest in their prized asset.

Liverpool were interested in signing the defensive midfielder in January, but failed to agree a deal before the close of the winter window.
