Lazio have become the latest side to target Galatasaray rising star Yunus Akgun according to the Gazzetta dello Sport.

Per the source, the Italian side would be interested in loaning him if they do end up signing him for the youngster to gain more first-team experience.

Galatasaray reportedly value Akgun as being worth €2-3m but he has just 12 months remaining on his current contract.

Akgun was close to a move to Anderlecht in January as reported by Turkish-Football.

Eren Sarigul of Turkish-Football reported that Chelsea, Wolfsburg, Benfica and Juventus scouted Akgun back in November in a piece for ESPN.

The highly rated 18-year-old broke into the first team from the Galatasaray academy last summer.

The winger played a starring role in the U17 Turkey national team that finished the 2017 U17 European Championship in 3rd place.
