Genoa are weighing up a move for left-back Achraf Lazaar, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.
The Italian transfer ‘expert’ believes the Moroccan international is the Serie A club’s main target to replace Diego Laxalt.
Milan are believed to be close to sealing a deal for the Uruguayan winger, prompting Genoa to look around for potential alternatives.
The Northern Echo report that we have told Lazaar he doesn’t have a future at the club, and this has prompted his agents to try and find him a club in Italy.
The 26-year-old did spend a year on loan with Benevento last season but didn’t play a minute of first-team football from January onwards after being left out of the squad for the second half of the campaign.
Lazaar last played for the club last August when he started the defeat to Notts Forest in the Carabao Cup. Since his arrival on a permanent deal from Palermo in 2016, the fullback has played just ten times in all competitions.
