The 30-year-old has a phenomenal record for Lazio since joining them in 2016. So far, he has scored 116 goals in 167 appearances for the Rome-based side. This season, he has reached 30 goals in all competitions for the second time in his career. And that form has led to belief he could fill a “chasm” in Manchester United’s line-up. Reports over the weekend raised the prospect of United moving for Immobile. Now the same publication, Calciomercato.it claims United are ready to push forward with their interest and make a firm enquiry. As per the report, Immobile is willing to push to make the move to the Red Devils should the chance emerge. And while Lazio would prefer to keep him, it’s thought they would not stand in his way were he to push for the move.”
