Tottenham Hotspur are ready to lock horns with Liverpool and Juventus in the fight to sign Ajax winger Ricardo Kishna, dubbed ‘the new Angel di Maria’.

The 19-year-old wideman is out of contract in six months and is a long-term target of Reds boss Brendan Rodgers.

However, Sports Direct News understands that Kishna, who has drawn favourable comparisons with Real Madrid and Argentina star di Maria, has caught the eye of Spurs technical director Franco Baldini.

Tottenham are now in the running but will be a close-run chase, as Serie A champions Juventus have close links with the player’s agent, Mino Raiola.

The Turin giants have already entered into talks with Raiola, who represents AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli, Napoli midfield man Marik Hamsik and Paris Saint-Germain hitman Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Manchester City’s interest in the teenager is said to have cooled, meaning Anfield or White Hart Lane are Kishna’s likely destinations if he chooses the Premier League over Serie A.
