West Ham midfielder, Ravel Morrison is in talks with Serie A side, Lazio according to BBC Sport.

It had been reported the Hammers had blocked Morrison, 21, from travelling to Italy over a breach of his contract. However, it is understood the delay was down to existing training commitments.

If the England U21 signs for Lazio they would become Morrison’s sixth club in a career that has been blighted by his off the field habits.

Morrison is undoubtedly a quality player, but his attitude off the pitch seems to hamper his life on it. A player who is constantly moving clubs to try and settle, will he be better suited to Italy? Or will it just be another temporary move that breaks down?

The former Manchester United star has played for Birmingham, QPR, Cardiff, and West Ham; but has struggled to fit in at all the clubs.

Is he, as Sam Allardyce puts it, “a wasting talent”?
