Lazio plot James Rodriguez move after David Silva snub

Lazio will test the ground for Real Madrid playmaker James Rodriguez after being snubbed by David Silva, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

Silva last night completed a shock move to Real Sociedad after ending his decade-long stay at Manchester City.

And Lazio, who thought they had Silva in the bag, were left furious and having to redraw their transfer plans.

The Biancocelesti still want a big summer signing and James Rodriguez reportedly tops their list.

The 29-year-old only has one year left on his Real Madrid deal and wants to leave the Bernabeu.

James’ salary of €6m-per-season is an obstacle, but Lazio could offer a long-term deal that compensates his immediate loss over a number of years.

The alternative is West Ham ace Felipe Anderson, who left Lazio for the English side two years ago.

Anderson, 27, was a fan favourite at Lazio before his €40m-plus move to West Ham in 2018.

The Hammers are expected to sell Anderson in order to raise funds for David Moyes to strengthen his squad.
