Atletico Madrid are rumored to be interested in him, whilst in recent days Villarreal have also been linked with the number 10.

Lazio want around €50-60 million for Luis Alberto but coach Maurizio Sarri wants to make the player a core part of his team, although the situation may force him to consider alternatives.
