Newcastle ready €135m package for Lazio star Immobile

Newcastle are prepared to make a €135m investment to sign Lazio striker Ciro Immobile, Gazzetta dello Sport reports.

The Premier League club are still awaiting approval for a Saudi takeover, but are making transfer plans.

Immobile is the man they want to lead the line and Newcastle have a tempting offer for Lazio.

They are offering a €55m fee for the 30-year-old plus a five-year contract worth €8m-per-season.

The Italy striker could be tempted by a new adventure abroad after previous spells with Borussia Dortmund and Sevilla.

However, Newcastle will have to overcome Immobile’s love for Lazio, with the Italy striker settled in Rome.

The Biancocelesti are working on a new contract for their star man, with an increase in salary to €4m-per-season.

It remains to be seen if Lazio owner Claudio Lotito will be tempted to sell, with €55m a huge sum for a 30-year-old.

Immobile is the Serie A top scorer this season and since returning to Italy with Lazio, has scored 116 goals in 167 appearances.
