Witsel now on Lazio radar

Lazio have joined Milan in pondering a bid for Standard Liege midfielder Alex Witsel, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

The Rossoneri have been monitoring the player for some time and sent Ariedo Braida to Belgium earlier this month.

Lazio have now seemingly joined the chase for the player too as they look to freshen things up in midfield.

The Belgium international, still just 22-years-old, is thought to be valued in the region of €15m by his present club.

Any eventual bids from Milan and Lazio are expected to be lower than that, with speculation suggesting that they value the midfielder closer to the €9m mark.
