Sevilla and Lazio both have a long-standing interest in Rangers’ Ianis Hagi and could well make bids for the attacking midfielder this summer, according to Cristian Bivolaru.
The CEO of Viitorul Constanta, the club that Hagi’s father Gheorghe formed a decade ago, was recently asked about the interest being shown in the player when he said:
“I don’t think the interest of Sevilla for Ianis is new. I think this interest was talked about before he was transferred to Rangers. But I do know Lazio are also on this track too. So we will see what will happen in the summer with Ianis.”
Sevilla’s sporting director Monchi is said to be keeping close tabs on Hagi, and it is believed his impressive performances for the Light Blues may lead to an offer from the Spanish club at the end of the season.
Lazio have also been mentioned as a potential bidder in recent weeks, with reports in Italy suggesting that the Serie A side could offer up to €13m (£11.3m) for the Romanian international.
As Bivolaru says himself, though, we shall have to wait and see whether the interest leads to a concrete bid in the summer.
