Inquired about by Italian giants such as Inter Milan, Napoli, and Fiorentina, mostly between 2014 and 2017 - back when he was still hailing from River Plate ranks, - 28-year old Argentinian international striker and Bayer Leverkusen member Lucas Alario, according to Kicker, has been targeted by Udinese. To this end, German club set an 8 million euros transfer fee upon the 1992-born CA Colón alumni, who didn't make into Argentina squad for recent Copa American 2021 campaign, despite having been capping for La Selección until last year. Alario was actually named by Lionel Scaloni, but had to quit, due to a thigh injury, and ended up being replaced by Julian Alvarez.

Currently on a deal with "The Aspirins" until June 2022, Alario, throughout his four year-long spell for Bundesliga side, capped 131 times overall in official games, home and international cups included, scoring 51 goals therein. Equipped with a dual Italian citizenship, Alario might actually go for a change, and experience Serie A league, as a career-first.
