Lazio head Italian queue for Hamilton starlet McCarthy

Lazio are chasing Hamilton Academicals midfielder James McCarthy.

The Scottish Sun says Accies chiefs have been alerted to the fact that the Serie A giants want to splash out on the 18-year-old midfielder. Lazio’s interest is backed up by Palermo and Serie B side Brescia are also on McCarthy’s trail.

Palermo have had him watched in his last two games but Lazio stole a march on them in a deal engineered by top agency Base Soccer.

But they were warned by Accies chief Ronnie MacDonald they would NOT be accepting any bid for their highly-rated stars.
