Vignato brothers to Lazio & Bayern?

Lazio are reportedly winning the race to sign Chievo attacker Emanuel Vignato, while his brother Samuele could be Bayern Munich-bound.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, Lazio are in talks with Chievo and Emanuel’s camp and a deal could be agreed in a matter of days.

The 18-year-old broke through last season, scoring one goal and providing one assist in 10 appearances for the relegated Flying Donkeys.

Although partly of Brazilian extract, Emanuel represents Italy at youth level and is primarily a No 10, although he can play on either wing.
