By Apollo Heyes -

Lazio president Claudio Lotito has slapped a €25 million price tag on Inter target Manuel Lazzari.

As reported by Italian newspaper Il Messaggero (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the Nerazzurri are searching for a suitable replacement for Moroccan wing-back Achraf Hakimi, who will be the first big player to leave the Milanese club this summer as they look to sort out their financial situation.

New coach Simone Inzaghi has requested Inter signed the 27-year-old Lazzari as a replacement. Contracted to Lazio until 2024, the former SPAL man is one of Inzaghi’s favourites, but Lotito has no interest in giving the Nerazzurri or the Italian coach any discounts.

As such, Lotito has put a €25 million price tag on Lazzari. Inter will have to back off for now, as they have prioritized selling players for now.

The 27-year-old Lazzari made 32 Serie A appearances this season, for a total of 2620 minutes. In that time, he scored two goals and provided six assists, having made 63 shot-creating actions across this campaign.
