Borussia Mönchengladbach seems to be in the race for the signature of Inter Milan winger Valentino Lazaro.
With the Bundesliga club confirming the signing of Hannes Wolf on loan from RB Leipzig, they are now looking into the possibility of bringing Lazaro to Borussia-Park, according to Kicker.
Borussia Mönchengladbach Sporting director Max Eberl told German football magazine “We always said that the want to sign two players. We have signed one and are working on the second one”.
Just as Wolf, Lazaro have also played under the manager of Borussia Mönchengladbach Marco Rose when he was at RB Salzburg in the past, and it’s now quite possible that he could be reunited with his former coach.
One thing is certain, however. Gladbach can’t afford to sign the 24-year-old on a permanent deal. But he could arrive on loan, possibly with an option to buy.
Lazaro spent the second half of last season on loan at Newcastle United, is capable of playing both as a full-back and as a winger.
Inter paid €22.4 million to sign the 24-year-old from Hertha Berlin in 2019. His contract expires in 2023.
