Achraf Lazaar’s move to Genoa is at risk, as Newcastle United want to include an obligation to buy next summer.
The Moroccan and his agent are in Milan to conclude a deal, but so far there has been no official announcement.
It was reported last night that the deal was being delayed by the Magpies’ insistence on inserting an obligation to buy, rather than the option that the Grifone want.
According to Tuttomercatoweb, President Enrico Preziosi has currently blocked the deal, and it’s not clear if a resolution will be found before the deadline this evening.
Sky Italia confirms that Lazaar is waiting for the go-ahead from Genoa, but expects that Preziosi will eventually sanction a deal.
