Bordeaux’s Basic Asked His Agent to Close Out Deal With Either Lazio or Napoli

Bordeaux midfielder Toma Basic has asked his agent to close out the deal with either Lazio or Napoli.

As reported by French media outlet Footmercato earlier today, the 24-year-old Croatian midfielder does not have a particular preference for either club and so has just asked his agent to secure a move to either of the two sides.

Lazio have been following Basic for some time now, believing him to be the perfect player to join Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Luis Alberto in the midfield three. Napoli are now providing competition for the 24-year-old, forcing the Biancocelesti into action.

The offer to Bordeaux will be decisive to securing a deal and so far neither Italian club has come close to the Ligue 1 side’s €12 million valuation.

Biancocelesti president Claudio Lotito is particularly convinced about the strengths of Basic and wants to provide coach Maurizio Sarri with his man.

The 24-year-old Basic scored four goals and provided one assist in 34 Ligue 1 appearances last campaign.
