English Premier League side Newcastle United have submitted a bid for Lazio FC striker Ciro Immobile.
The Steve Bruce side has put an offer of around €55m (£49.2m) on the table for the striker as they seek to boost their side in the coming summer with the club set to be bought by a Saudi Arabia owner.
Reports from La Gazzetta Dello Sport indicate that the club is willing to offer the player wages of around €8m (£7.1m) per season for five years.
The deal might prove to be too good for Lazio and Immobile who are doing all they can to topple the dominance exhibited by Juventus in the Serie A.
Immobile is a proven goal scorer and is the current leading goalscorer in the Serie A with Newcastle doing all they can to get a striker with Joelinton and Carroll yet to convince the team that they are capable of giving goals on a weekly basis.
Newcastle are in the middle of a takeover and once the formalities are complete, they are expected to invest heavily into the playing squad; the club having been linked with PSG striker Edison Cavani and former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.
Immobile has 30 goals and 7 assists to his name in 32 games this season and will hope that he can lead Lazio to the title before he leaves.
