Stefano Sturaro’s agent admits Lazio would tempt the Juventus midfielder but warns ‘he’s no longer a kid who’s happy to earn €500,000 a year’.
Speculation concerning Sturaro’s future is likely to re-ignite once the season is out, and Carlo Volpi claims to have received offers from ‘at least 15 Italian teams’ for the 25-year-old.
“I’ve received offers from at least 15 Italian teams for him,” he told cittaceleste.it.
“He’s a player who’s very well liked. As for interest from Lazio, however, we must ask Juventus, who until now haven’t been open to selling him.
“The Bianconeri, as well as Lazio, are fighting for important objectives and the market is currently on standby.
“To date, however, I can say that I haven’t talked to [Lazio sporting director Igli] Tare yet. Any talk [about his future] been postponed until the end of the season.
“Lazio? They’re a prestigious club with important objectives. Over the years, they’ve succeeded in improving very young players very well and turning them into champions.
“They’re now an important team in Italian football, who would certainly be taken into consideration.
“That’s also to say Sturaro is currently playing for the best team in Italy, with a salary to go with it. He’s no longer a kid who’s happy to earn €500,000 a year.
“He’d would be an important investment for the Biancocelesti, but Lazio would have to offer him the salary of a top player.
“There are several dynamics that need to be verified before negotiations can start.”
