Lazio, Napoli and Milan All Want Union SG Striker Boniface

Reports from Belgium suggest that Lazio are one of three Serie A clubs interested in signing Union Saint Gilloise striker Victor Boniface.

The 22-year-old Nigerian forward joined the Belgian outfit from Bodo/Glimt last summer for just €2m, and has quickly proven his abilities in a more difficult league, scoring seven goals and providing five assists across 27 Juplier Pro League appearances.

Lazio know that they need to sign a new centre forward in the summer to take some of the pressure off of talismanic striker Ciro Immobile, and a number of options are being considered.

As reported by Het Nieuwsblad (via LazioNews24), Lazio have joined Milan and Napoli in the race for Boniface, a physical striker with a strong eye for goal.

Valued at around €10 million, the Rossoneri and Partenopei have already scouted the 22-year-old on a number of occasions.

Lazio are hoping to pick up Tigre striker Mateo Retegui in the summer but could switch to Boniface should they miss out on the Argentine-Italian.
