Lazio have joined the race to sign Inter target Marash Kumbulla, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Milano based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.

The report details how the Biancocelesti registered their interest in the 20-year-old Albanian defender a year ago and have now re-joined the race to sign the Hellas Verona starlet. The player is valued at around €30 million, a high figure considering the current financial climate. Lazio have already met Kumbulla’s entourage and would like to bring the player to Rome.

Inter are seriously interested in signing Kumbulla, the report continues, but must also be aware that some Premier League clubs may also join the race for the player.

The 20-year-old Albanian defender, who is contracted to the Gialloblu until 2022, has made 19 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 1581 minutes. In that time, he has scored one goal and helped the side keep seven clean sheets.
