Luis Alberto was one of the stand-out stars for Lazio this season, contributing greatly to the attacking moves and plays that saw Lazio finish 5th in Serie A. The latest reports from Radiosei are suggesting that Sevilla are interested in resigning the player; with a number of other Spanish clubs also reportedly interested.

However, as the player recently renewed his contract with Lazio until 2022, it is likely that he would be available for no less than €60 million, a price tag which puts of a Sevilla who could only pay half of that at a maximum. It is therefore likely that any unsubstantial bids which come in for Luis Alberto will be rejected out-of-hand and Sevilla will have no option but to look elsewhere.

In 34 Serie A matches this season, Luis Alberto scored 11 and assisted a further 14 goals, receiving 5 MOTM awards and a 7.66 average rating, according to WhoScored. The versatile forward played mainly as a CF this season, but is competent out on either wing, or as a striker up front. Additionally, with an average of 2.6 key passes per game, 1.8 cross per game and 2.6 long balls per game; the visionary midfielder has been a vital part of Lazio’s build-up play.
