According to dello Sport, Lazio sporting director Igli Tare offered Hellas Verona €20 million as well as 20-year-old , but the Aquile are not expected to offer more money.

In addition to the money and Anderson, they will include Cristiano Lombardi as part of the Kumbulla deal.

Initially the Biancocelesti were going to include the winger in a deal for SPAL wing-back Mohamed Fares but he might be included in the for the Albanian centre-back instead.

Kumbulla was born in Peschiera del Garda in the province of Verona but he has decided to represent the country of his parents.
