Lazio, Valencia interested in Barcelona midfielder Riqui Puig

Lazio are interested in Barcelona midfielder Riqui Puig.

Sport says Valencia have also asked about the Barça midfielder but they now have competition from Serie A after Lazio boss Maurizio Sarri backed a move.

Lazio are looking for a technical attacking midfielder and have also been linked with Celta Vigo midfielder Denis Suarez.

A deal for the former Barça man is complicated, though, and a move for Puig would be much easier to negotiate at this stage.

Lazio are prepared to pay his full salary as part of a loan, while Valencia currently have their hands tied as they are over their LaLiga salary limit and cannot register new players.
