After firing Hellas Verona to safety, attacker Cyril Ngonge is drawing interest from bigger clubs less than six months after moving to Serie A.

According to Alfredo Pedulla, one those clubs includes Maurizio Sarri’s Lazio side, who have already made an inquiry for the 23 year-old. The Biancocelesti want to pick up a new winger this summer with Sassuolo captain Domenico Berardi their top target.

However, there’s still no agreement in place with the Neroverdi which forced Lazio to consider alternative options—enter Ngonge. Verona are willing to part with the Belgian but he’ll cost any interested club an estimated €10 million fee—an impressive potential profit after purchasing the player in January for €1.3 million.
