According to Brazilian news outlet O Dia, Flamengo youngster Lazaro has sparked interest from Blues and Huddersfield Town.

The 19-year-old is attracting interest from Blues scouts as the summer transfer window approaches.

While Huddersfield’s talks are “more advanced”, Blues could be a more desirable move for the former Brazil U17 international.

Valued at £1.6m by Transfermarkt, the youngster could be a coup for Lee Bowyer as he starts to stamp his mark on recruitment.

Featuring in attacking midfield and left-wing, the Rio de Janeiro-based wonder-kid has played five times for the club’s senior side across all competitions.

Making 3 appearances for the Brazil U17’s, Lazard scored 2 goals since his debut back in November 2019.
