Multiple reports say Lazio sporting director Igli Tare met with agent of Atalanta’s Alejandro Gomez today.
The attacking midfielder has been linked with the Biancocelesti, with reports that he has agreed in principle to a €1.5m per season contract.
Now Sky and Corriere dello Sport are reporting that Tare met with Giuseppe Riso, Gomez’s agent, in Milan today.
The Argentinian international, known affectionately as ‘Papu’ scored 16 goals for the Orobici this season, as well as hitting double figures in terms of assists.
It appears the Aquile are pushing forward to try and bring him to Rome, but agreeing a fee could be the real stumbling block.
Atalanta are believed to be asking for €20m, while previous reports stated that Lazio would only offer half that.
