According to Italian news outlet Il Tempo, the two Merseyside clubs are set to battle it out to try and sign the 20-year-old who has been in fine form for his Italian club this season.
Everton have been linked to the midfielder for some time but according to TuttoMercatoWeb the player is unlikely to move in the January Transfer Window.
Should Onazi decide to leave Lazio the chances are likely he will choose Liverpool over Everton as in November he said: "I would jump at the chance to play in the Premier League.
"Liverpool? They are a huge team and are attractive to any footballer. I could see myself playing for them."
