NEWCASTLE have reportedly agreed a deal to sign Valentino Lazaro on loan from Inter Milan.
Sky Sports claim the Austrian right-sider, who can play in midfield or defence, is on the verge of a January move to St James’ Park until the end of the season.
It’s reckoned Steve Bruce will pay £1million for the switch, and has the option of forking out an additional £20m to make the move permanent next summer.
Lazaro, 23, only joined Inter last summer from Hertha Berlin but has featured just four times under Antonio Conte.
The tactician has now secured deals for Man Utd’s Ashley Young and Chelsea’s Victor Moses.
And Lazaro is free to move to Newcastle just half a year after being linked with Arsenal.
The wing-back has been in Bruce’s sights for some time.
And Lazaro will become his latest signing after Newcastle pounced for Schalke’s Nabil Bentaleb earlier this week.
