Petagna to trigger domino effect?

Lazio’s interest in Andrea Petagna is reportedly the key to a transfer domino effect involving Lucas Biglia and Etrit Berisha.

According to Corriere dello Sport, this is because Milan would recoup 50 percent of any fee from Petagna’s sale.

However, Milan would write that off if they are able to close a deal for Lazio midfielder Lucas Biglia.
