Brighton and Hove Albion are interested in Lazio defender Jordan Lukaku, claims an Italian report.

Newspaper Il Messaggero say that the Seagulls and Leeds United have both made €5m offers to bring the full back to the Premier League, as picked up by Sport Witness.

26-year-old Lukaku, who is the younger brother of former Manchester United and Everton striker Romelu Lukaku, is known for his attacking abilities from defence and impressed in the latter stages of last season.

Lukaku has been linked with a move to the Premier League in previous transfer windows, namely to Newcastle – but will only be allowed to depart this time around if Lazio boss Simone Inzaghi green lights the deal.

Inzaghi is said to be a fan of the Belgian, but his poor injury record in recent seasons may well encourage the Serie A side to cash in.
