Tottenham Hotspur morning news: Spurs reportedly make contact over £8m rated Serie A star

White Hart Lane

A round up of news stories this morning about Tottenham Hotspur.

The Metro has claimed that Tottenham will beat Liverpool to the signing of Ogenyi Onazi.

The 21-year-old, who currently plays for Lazio in Serie A, is rated at around the £8 million mark and thought to be of interest to both clubs.

Franco Baldini has reportedly already made contact over a potential transfer to give Spurs the edge.

Tottenham could face interest from Newcastle United in the race to sign Romelu Lukaku from Chelsea.

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has refused to be drawn on his side’s interest, admitting that he thinks plenty of clubs will be trying to sign him this summer.

“I think he is a player a lot of clubs will be looking at in the summer. I don't think Everton will get a free run at him,” he told the Express.

Kyle Walker has been ranked as Tottenham’s best player through an EA Player Performance Index.

The right-back has had an inconsistent season but according to the ratings system of the official Premier League partner, he comes out on top.

Emmanuel Adebayor, Paulinho, Hugo Lloris and Mousa Dembele make up the top five.
