Jamaal Lascelles: Lazio target Newcastle United defender
According to what has been reported by LazioNews24, Lazio are interested in signing Newcastle United defender Jamaal Lascelles. The reports suggest that Lazio have identified the 25-year-old as a potential defensive addition to help strengthen the side ahead of next season.
Lazio have been linked to a plethora of central defenders so far this season, including Braga defender Bruno Viana and Hoffenheim’s Kevin Vogt. Lascelles has been at Newcastle United since 2014 and is valued at around €16m.
Lascelles has a contract until 2024, however, so the Premier League outfit will be unwilling to let their defender leave. There is, perhaps, the possibility of Lazio using Jordan Lukaku to sweeten the deal; as the club look to offload the Belgian left-back and Newcastle showing an interest in the full-back in January.
