The short list for attackers for Lazio next season has been getting longer and longer this summer. Strikers Sardar Azmoun, Anger’s Toko Ekambi, Akhisarspor’s Paulo Henrique and Arsenal’s Lucas Perez have all been liked to the club. However, according to Sky Sports, Simone Inzaghi has made his own request to sporting director Igli Tare about who he wants to lift some weight off Immobile’s shoulders.
Atalanta striker Andrea Petagna – born in 1995 – who played in 38 games and scored a total of 6 goals for the Nerazzurri, is Inzaghi’s pick,
The good relationship between Lazio and Atalanta after the Berisha deal could serve as a possibility of a new deal between the two clubs. Inzaghi is said to appreciate that Petagna is young and knows the way of Italian football. Even if Petagna even has not scored much, he is an attacker capable of holding the ball and sending his teammates towards goal. With these characteristics Andrea could not only be an alternative to Immobile, but also an ideal partner.
In the next few days, we will know if Tare will be able to satisfy the desire of his coach or not.
Would Andrea Petagna be a good alternative to Ciro Immobile?
