Lots of competition out there for Lapadula, including Genoa, Juventus and Leicester City.
26 year old Gianluca Lapadula has interest from both far and near, when you score 24 goals in 38 matches, scouts are bound to take notice.
According to Sportitalia, Genoa has formalized an offer to Pescara for the striker’s services on the basis of €9 million plus bonuses. It’s a signal that the Grifone are willing to sacrifice leading scorer Leonardo Pavoletti for an upgrade.
However, the Champions of England are also looming for the presumptive capocannoniere of Serie B. Claudio Ranieri has sent a scout to observe Lapadula and come Wednesday they will decide whether to submit a bid to the Abruzzo side.
It’s suggested that the Foxes could bid upwards of €6.5 million for the forward in the summer.
