Lazio have opened talks with Riccardo Orsolini’s agents despite Bologna’s expensive price tag.

As reported by Italian newspaper La Repubblica Bologna (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the 24-year-old Italian winger is considered a serious possibility by the Biancocelesti management, with coach Maurizio Sarri a fan of the player, who fits nicely into his 4-3-3 system.

Bologna value Orsolini at around €20 million, but Lazio don’t want to pay more than €10-12 million plus add-ons for the player. Despite this difference, sporting director Igli Tare has already opened talks with the Italian’s agents.

The Rossoblu do not consider Orsolini to be unsellable and rumours suggest that the relationship between the 24-year-old Italian winger and coach Sinisa Mihajlovic is not what it once was.

The Biancocelesti are still considering many options now, like West Ham’s Felipe Anderson or Sassuolo’s Domenico Berardi, but the Orsolini idea is still on the table currently.

The 24-year-old Orsolini scored seven goals and provided four assists in 34 Serie A appearances this season.
