Lazio close in on Laxalt?

Lazio are reportedly closing in on a deal to sign Genoa winger Diego Laxalt.

Accoridng to Sky Sport Italia, Lazio have already reached ‘an agreement in principle’ with Laxalt and must now negotiate a fee with Genoa.

The broadcaster explains the Uruguayan was ‘specifically requested’ by Aquile boss Simone Inzaghi, while Milan were hoping to offer Andrea Bertolacci – who spent last season back on loan with the Grifone – in exchange.

Laxalt, who turned 25 in February, scored three goals and assisted four in 32 Serie A appearances last season.
