Atletico Madrid’s De Paul Linked to Lazio

Rodrigo De Paul has been linked with Lazio, although a transfer looks doubtful.

The Biancocelesti are no longer pursuing Samuele Ricci from Torino, therefore they are looking at alternative midfield options this month.

Juventus’ Nicolo Rovella has gained traction, and they’re also competing with Leicester City for Cesare Casadei, but now a new name has been added.

Il Tempo (via TMW) that Lazio wants Atletico’s De Paul this month, but a trade is unlikely.

The 29-year-old is contracted to the Spanish club until June 2026 and is worth roughly €40 million.

Last month, Lazio sold Sergej Milinkovic-Savic to Al-Hilal for €42 million, but Claudio Lotito is unlikely to commit so much to one player.
