It is reported that Lazio want to tie up a deal for Genoa’s Diego Laxalt before the start of the World Cup.
The attacking-midfielder is part of the Uruguay squad for the tournament in Russia and is valued at €15m by his current club.
Gazzetta dello Sport claims that the Biancocelesti, who finished fifth in Serie A this season, are reluctant to pay more that €10m to secure the 25-year-old’s signature.
However, their hand may be forced by the World Cup’s imminent start.
