Newcastle fans react to report linking Jamaal Lascelles with summer move to Lazio

Newcastle captain Jamaal Lascelles has been linked with a switch to Serie A.

Serie A club Lazio are keen on signing Newcastle United captain Jamaal Lascelles this summer, according to Italian outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi.

They report that Lazio boss Simone Inzaghi wants younger defenders to spruce up his backline and Lascelles fits the bill because he has experience in a division as challenging as the Premier League.

Arsenal defender Calum Chambers is also named in the report as a player of interest, despite having played in midfield for much of his loan spell with Fulham last season, which ended in relegation from the Premier League.

But it also quotes a 14 million euros asking price for Lascelles, which works out at £12.5 million and many Newcastle fans have taken to Twitter to laugh off the links.

They are probably right to laugh them off in truth. Lascelles is the club’s captain and a lynchpin – it’s tough to see him trading that in and it’s harder to see the club letting him leave at that low price.

That was the gist of the criticism online, with most fans telling the Italian side to stump up more cash or forget about signing £40,000-a-week (Spotrac) man Lascelles this summer…
