Serbian striker Filip Djordjevic is struggling to get regular playing time at Serie A club Lazio, and that has obviously led rumours of him wanting a move away from the club.

Italian striker Ciro Immobile is Simone Inzaghi’s preferred option up front, which has made things difficult for Djordjevic.

Lazio signed Djordjevic on a free transfer from Nantes in 2014, and see this as an opportunity to make some profit out of it. Middlesbrough, however, should be ready to beat competition from the likes of Lyon and several German clubs, who are also keen on his services.

Djordjevic scored 12 league goals in the last two seasons, and hasn’t opened his account this season yet. The Serbian has less than two years left on his contract, so a decision is expected on his future soon.
