Inter winger Valentino Lazaro could depart this summer, with English Premier League club Newcastle United interested in the Austrian.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the Tyneside club are weighing up the possibility of bringing in the 25-year-old on a permanent basis.

Lazaro was brought to the Giuseppe Meazza from Hertha Berlin in the summer of 2019, but failed to cement a place for himself in the favoured starting eleven under then-manager Antonio Conte.

With other options preferred in his position, he departed for Newcastle on loan during the second half of his first season with the Nerazzurri.

Returning from his loan in England last summer, he was sent out to spend another season on loan, this time with Borussia Monchengladbach in Germany.

The Austrian is now back with Inter, though it is thought the club do not consider the player to be in their plans and would like to move him on for a fee to help increase liquidity and meet financial targets in the summer, and his former loan destination Newcastle have emerged as a possible permanent home for him.
