Super-agent set to shape Lazio transfer policy this summer

Lazio may have found the perfect ally to aid them in their recruitment drive this summer. The Biancocelesti management have reportedly established a good working relationship with Portuguese super-agent Jorge Mendes. This could subsequently lead to an arrangement whereby some of Mendes’ clients play their football in Rome next season.

Tiquinho Soares – who only joined Porto in late January – reportedly tops the Olimpico side’s list of transfer targets. The Brazilian forward holds a Portuguese passport and would therefore not fill a non-EU spot in Simone Inzaghi’s squad.

18-year-old French wonderkid Kylian Mbappé, valued at €15m by Monaco, is of interest to Le Aquile who are gradually building one of Europe’s most exciting young teams. Claudio Lotito’s Biancazzurri are also targeting two of Mbappé’s teammates; 21-year-old attacking midfielder Thomas Lemar and 24-year-old centre back Jemerson who are valued at €15m and €12m respectively.

Meanwhile, Belgian winger Zakaria Bakkali is in contention for a move to Serie A and would cost somewhere in the region of €5m. 21-year-old Porto midfielder Rúben Neves may decide to quit the Primeira Liga and join the capital club for a fee of €15m, as could Danilo who is on loan at Standard Liege from Benfica.
