Tottenham are strongly linked to Keita Balde.
Lazio are determined not to sell the attacker to Juventus and believe Tottenham are their best best to offload the wantaway attacker.
Spurs are ready to pay their £27 million asking price, but Keita has yet to indicate he is willing to join the North London side.
AC Milan are regarded as outsiders to hijack Tottenham's attempts, and could be Keita's most likely destination at this point if he stays in Italy.
Lazio could consider the move, as it is just Juventus they are keen to block him signing for.
AC Milan have been prolific in the transfer window, spending big money on Andre Silva, Franck Kessie, and Leonardo Bonucci among others in a £160 million spree.
They may not be done yet either, and Lazio are keen to get rid of Keita after omitting him from recent squads, while he has called off training 'sick'.
Tottenham have a week to try and convince him to join, but Milan could be ready to complicate matters.
