Lazio sporting director Igli Tare has rubbished reports in the media which have claimed they have made a €30 million offer for Hellas Verona’s Marash Kumbulla.
The Italian capital city club have been heavily linked to the highly rated Italian born Albanian national team player, who has also drawn links to Inter, Juventus and Fiorentina among other clubs.
Kumbulla is widely regarded as one of the best defensive prospects currently plying their trade in Serie A and this season he has had his first team breakthrough at the Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi club.
“Lazio have never made a €30m offer for anyone, so the rumours are not true,” Tare explained in an interview with Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, earlier on today.
He went on to add: “The player could be an important figure for the future of Lazio, so it’s an opportunity for us to make more of an effort, but we won’t change our general philosophy. Danger is always around the corner. We will try to form a team that can be competitive again next season.”
The 20-year-old, who is under contract with the Gialloblu club until the end of the 2021/22 season, has made 23 appearances across all competitions to date. During his time on the park, which totals just under 1900 minutes, he has scored a single goal.
