Carrillo waits for Lazio

Alianza Arena striker Andre Carrillo is awaiting an offer from Lazio, according to Il Corriere dello Sport.

The 19-year-old Peru international is very highly regarded in South America.

Dutch side Groningen have seen an offer worth €1.3m for 70 per cent of Carrillo's rights turned down.

Il Corriere understands that Carrillo's preference is to play in Italy next season.

"Alianza haven't called us," said Carrillo's agent Elio Casareto. "He is wanted by many clubs, but we haven't signed with anyone.

"The priority was Lazio. It's also true that we are talking to other clubs."

Lazio are expected to make a bid worth €2m in the coming weeks.
