Reports: Lazio and Napoli set their sights on Bonaventura with new deal unlikely

By Oliver Fisher -

Midfielder Giacomo Bonaventura is attracting interest from two of Milan’s Serie A rivals with his deal set to expire in June, a report claims.

Having joined Milan from Atalanta back in 2014, Bonaventura has been one of the stars and most consistent performers through a difficult past half decade, yet as mentioned there is nothing to suggest he will be given a new deal by his boyhood club.

The 30-year-old is on a contract which is set to expire at the end of the season, and with no signs of an imminent renewal it appears clubs are beginning to take a keen interest in the situation.

According to what is being reported by Calciomercato.com, Lazio are already planning for a 2020-21 season in which they will be back in the Champions League.

Sporting director Igli Tare wants Bonaventura of Milan. As il Corriere dello Sport reports, the 30-year-old has been unable to conquer Pioli and as a result is likely to be allowed to leave.

The fate of Bonaventura seems linked to that of Marco Parolo, and if the veteran chooses to retire then they could make a more concrete move.

Watch out for his former coach Gennaro Gattuso and Napoli though, who would welcome the former Atalanta man with open arms.
