Sportitalia transfer expert Alfredo Pedullà has reported for some time that Luis Alberto wants a return to Spain and is not part of coach Maurizio Sarri’s plans, as he was dropped several times last season.
However, agreeing a fee with Sevilla is proving trickier than expected, unable to reach his €30m asking price.
Meanwhile, Lazio are stuck and unable to sign his replacement until they have been able to release Luis Alberto.
The plan is already in motion, with a double deal done for Verona midfielder Ilic and defender Casale.
As for Casale, he had been on the verge of a transfer to newly-promoted Monza until he suddenly pulled out with the medical already planned.
This is because he had his heart set on Lazio, where he would follow Matteo Cancellieri, who has already completed his move on loan with obligation to buy for a total €7m.
