Newcastle United’s incoming owners have launched a bid for Lazio striker Ciro Immobile.
The Saudi Arabian-backed consortium is waiting for approval to complete their takeover – though transfer plans are already underway.
Gazzetta dello Sport says a €55m offer has been lodged with Lazio for Immobile, who is also in talks about personal terms. A five-year contract, worth €8m-a-season, has been tabled.
Newcastle’s offer is worth double what he is currently on.
Immobile’s deal runs to 2023.
