Lazio set to raise offer for Torino’s Samuele Ricci

Serie A side Lazio are expected to increase their offer to Torino for midfielder Samuele Ricci.

According to a report by Gianluca Di Marzio, Lazio will send a revised offer to Torino over the weekend for securing the services of Samuele Ricci.

The Biancocelesti have already sent in a primary offer of €18 million plus €2 million in bonuses for the Italian midfielder but the Turin-based club’s demand stands at €30 million, which seems a bit excessive to the interested club.

The operation for the 21-year-old remains complex for Lazio as they will have to raise their offer in order to make Torino president Urbano Cairo consider it. 

Maurizio Sarri sees Ricci as a replacement for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic who completed his transfer to Al-Hilal recently. The capital club is expected to negotiate to the bitter end to sign the young midfielder.

The former Empoli man has 61 appearances in the Serie A so far. He has scored a total of 3 goals and 2 assists.
