The 21-year-old Botheim became widely known across Europe this season after his impressive performances in the Europa Conference League for Bødo/Glimt, scoring three goals and providing three assists in two matches against Roma.

Lazio have been linked with Botheim for some time now, believing him to be the perfect backup striker to Ciro Immobile, but now the club will have to look elsewhere.
