Lazio talks for Argentine Gaich

Lazio are closing in on Argentina U20 striker Adolfo Gaich, whose agent flew in for meetings, but are unwilling to pay his €15m release clause.

According to the website Lazionews.eu, the San Lorenzo striker’s agent is in the capital and could meet with representatives of the Biancocelesti.

Lautaro on target for Argentina

Inter striker Lautaro Martinez scored two goals in Argentina’s 5-1 friendly win over Nicaragua last night.

They are warming up for the Copa America and Lautaro confirmed why he was included in the squad at the expense of Nerazzurri teammate Mauro Icardi.

The 21-year-old came off the bench in place of Sergio Aguero and promptly scored twice in just 10 minutes, both from corners.

“I am very happy to have scored with the Seleccion shirt again,” ‘El Toro’ told reporters, as he now has four goals in just seven senior caps.

Argentina: Dybala in, Icardi out

Inter striker Mauro Icardi has failed to make Argentina’s Copa America squad, but Juventus’ Paulo Dybala is included.

Icardi had already been a contentious choice for Argentina, amidst reports Messi does not consider him welcome due to his alleged affair with Wanda Nara when she was still married to ex-Serie A journeyman Maxi Lopez.

However, he seems to have paid for his midseason exile with Inter and run without a goal from open play since December.

On the other hand, teammate Lautaro Martinez has been selected for the tournament.
