    Tottenham rival Liverpool for £30m-rated Lazio star Keita Balde as Mauricio Pochettino eyes reinforcements

    By Darren Lewis

    Spurs are among a number of clubs keen on £30million Lazio forward Keita Balde.The 22 year-old is also being chased by Everton and Liverpool who are big fans but have had approaches rejected. Balde has racked up 18 goals and six assists in 34 appearances over the past season.He is refusing to sign a new deal and is understood to be holding out for a move to Juventus. The Italian champions have yet to make a move for him, however, and all three English clubs remain in the hunt for his services.

    If Balde insists on the Old Lady, like Patrik Schick has done with his move from Sampdoria, Lazio may be forced to accept a lower price than they would ideally like.Spurs would be adding pace and directness in Balde and an option to move back to a front three with wingers for Mauricio Pochettino.

    I believe it was established that his previous behaviour indicates he would not have the attitude Poch requires.

    Would seem strange if he went to Juve given that they seem to be signing Douglas Costa too.

    Thought we'd already signed Baldé? As chairman, in 2001?

    Saw this earlier. Not the most reliable of sources and I believe it has been denied by West Ham ITKs (apparently he was on their list but hadn't heard a fee had been agreed). I don't know why he'd go there over Inter.

    Edit - Schick deal to Juve is off, Keita could go there as well I guess.

    Could Lazio be trying to use West Ham to jack up the price on Inter. Would be amusing.
