Leeds United and Brighton & Hove Albion are interested in Lazio’s Jordan Lukaku, according to Il Messaggero.
The newspaper largely focuses on the impending arrivals of Mohamed Fares and Vedat Muriqi from SPAL and Fenerbahçe respectively.
At the end of the report, there’s a mention of players who could leave the club this summer, and the Belgian is among them.
It’s claimed both the Whites and the Seagulls have tabled €5m proposals for Lukaku, and that’s about the only piece of information mentioned about the two Premier League clubs.
La Lazio Sia Monoi have relayed these claims and they further provide update an the Serie A side’s stance regarding the fullback.
Simone Inzaghi likes the player because he believes Lukaku has the ability to change the course of the game in the attacking phase. He also impressed in the final months of the last campaign.
The defender, on the other hand, has struggled with injuries over the last two years, and Fares’ arrival could see him drop down the pecking order, if Senad Lulić continues at the club.
Lazio have offers from Leeds and Brighton, and the website ends their report by stating; ‘The offer is there, but it will be necessary to understand if the management and the coach will give the green light to the deal.’
