“Lapadula will not go for less than €10m,” Pescara president Daniele Sebastiani told reporters.

“Nobody believed in him, but the results have proved us right.” 

Lapadula has enjoyed a remarkable rise to prominence, having represented Slovenian club Gorica and third-tier Italian side Teramo on loan from Parma in the previous two seasons.

He joined Serie B team Pescara on a free transfer last July and has gone on to score 26 goals in 39 league appearances this season, with club director Giorgio Ripetto confirming this week he would move regardless of whether they achieve promotion to the top flight.

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti also got his big move after starring for Pescara.
