Lazio sporting director Igli Tare will meet with Feyenoord midfielder Orkun Kökçü’s entourage this evening.
According to a report from Italian radio broadcaster Radiosei (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the 20-year-old Turkish midfielder dreams of playing for a club in Europe’s top five leagues and his agents are in Rome to sound out the possibility of joining the Biancocelesti.
Contracted to Feyenoord until 2025, Kökçü is worth around €10-12 million and has shown promise in recent seasons, despite suffering from inconsistent performances. In the past, Roma previously scouted the Turkish midfielder but focused on other options instead.
The 20-year-old Kökçü has made 25 appearances across all competitions so far this season for Feyenoord, for a total of 1828 minutes. In that time, he has scored three goals and provided two assists, as well as one straight red card.
One of his agents confirmed their presence in Rome with a post on Instagram, which read “Let’s see what happens in Italy.”
