Lazio: Balotelli rejected, duo close

Lazio should reportedly have deals for Genk’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Ricardo Kishna of Ajax completed next week, while rejecting Mario Balotelli.

LaLazioSiamoNoi believes that Genk have been convinced by an offer of €8m plus bonuses for Serbia Under-20 international Milinkovic-Savic and that he could arrive this weekend.

It was reported yesterday that Kishna’s agent Mino Raiola was trying to find a way to get his client released from Ajax for a minimal fee.

Il Tempo believes that the Dutch club are looking for €5m for the 20-year-old winger and that he will sign a four-year deal worth €1.2m per season.

Kishna’s agent Raiola also represents wantaway Liverpool forward Balotelli, and LaLazioSiamoNoi believe the controversial striker has been offered to the Biancoceleste.

Although the response from President Claudio Lotito was believed to be a firm no, the situation could reportedly change if Liverpool agreed to pay his wages and Lazio reached the Champions League group stages.
