Newcastle Preparing To Spend Total Of €135 Million To Sign Lazio's Ciro Immobile

Newcastle Preparing To Spend Total Of €135 Million To Sign Lazio's Ciro Immobile

Newcastle United are reportedly preparing an ambitious offering totalling €135 million for Lazio striker Ciro Immobile.

Should the club finally get taken over by The Saudi Public Investment Fund after endless speculation, it's said the new owners are keen on smashing the club's record transfer fee straight from the off.

Gazzetta dello Sport say that Newcastle have submitted an offer in the region of £49 million (€55 million) for the Italy international.

They are also willing to make him the highest-paid player at St James' Park by giving him a handsome pay packet of €8 million-a-year as part of a lucrative five-year contract.
