Luca Waldschmidt: Freiburg forward joins Lazio’s wish-list
In the past few days, a whole host of names have been linked with a move to Lazio. After missing out on the signing of Wesley Moraes, the Brazilian forward having reached an agreement to join newly-promoted Premier League side Aston Villa, Lazio are looking at alternate targets. The latest from Radiosei‘s press review suggests that the latest name on the list is that of SC Freiburg forward Luca Waldschmidt.
Waldschmidt, 23, has represented Germany at youth levels from U16 right up to U21 and signed for Freiburg from Hamburg just last year; for a reported fee of €5m. Now, after scoring 9 goals in 30 Bundesliga games, Waldschmidt is being linked away from the Bundesliga; with reports suggesting Lazio are on his trail.
The German’s current contract with Freiburg expires in 2022 and, therefore, he is likely to be available for around €12-15m but, due to his age, would be a worthwhile investment for the future.
