The club is looking to strengthen up front in this month’s transfer window – and a move for the Inter Milan winger has been discussed.

However, head coach Steve Bruce – who met owner Mike Ashley for transfer talks this week – was coy when asked about 23-year-old Lazaro today.

Bruce said: “It’s wrong to talk about individuals.

“We’ve been linked with about 58 players, and I don’t want to comment on that.”
