Kevin Lasagna (Italian pronunciation: ; born 10 August 1992) is an Italian footballer who plays for Serie A club Udinese and the Italy national team as a striker.

Club career
Early career
Born in San Benedetto Po, Lasagna started his career with Governolese near his home town. In 2012, Lasagna signed for Serie D team Cerea and scored 7 times in 35 games throughout the 2012–13 season. Lasagna joined Este for the 2013–14 and scored 21 times in 33 games making him one of the most sought after players of the lower leagues.

Carpi
In July 2014, Lasagna joined Serie B side Carpi. Lasagna made his Serie B debut on September 13, as a substitute in the 1–1 draw against Crotone. On 15 November 2014, Lasagna scored his first Carpi goal, wrapping up a 5–2 win against Cittadella, to send Carpi to the top of Serie B.

In January 2017, it was announced that Lasagna would join Udinese for the 2017–18 season and finish the 2016–17 season with Carpi. Udinese reportedly paid Carpi a transfer fee of €4.5 million plus possible bonuses.

International career
On 9 October 2018, Lasagna was called to the Italy senior team by manager Roberto Mancini as a replacement for the injured Simone Zaza, for the upcoming UEFA Nations League match against Poland on 14 October. He made his senior international debut during the match, coming on as a late substitute in the eventual 1–0 away win, and set up Cristiano Biraghi's injury time winner with a header following a corner, which secured Italy's safety in the group. He made his first start for Italy on 20 November, in a 1–0 friendly win over the United States, held in Genk.

Style of play
A tall and quick left-footed forward, Lasagna's natural role is that of a main striker in the centre, although he is also capable of playing as a second striker, or as a left winger in an attacking trident, due to his ability to both score goals and play off of his teammates. His best qualities are his pace, his ball control when dribbling at speed, his physical strength, and his offensive movement, which enables him to lose his markers and attack spaces from behind with his runs both on and off the ball; he is also known for his striking ability across goal with his left foot while on the run.
