There has been talk of reinforcements for striker Ciro Immobile, midfielder Lucas Leiva, and now, finally goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha. The Albanian has hardly ever rested this year: he has played in 53 games in all competitions – 38 in the league, 10 in the Europa League, 4 in the Coppa Italia, and 1 in the Italian Supercoppa.
Tare takes note and looks around, until his gaze stops in Greece. Here, Lazio stops at Olympiakos, whose net is protected by Silvio Proto. The biancocelesti seems to be thinking about a possible recruitment of the Belgian goalkeeper.
With Anderlecht Proto obtained 286 appearances from 2005 to 2016, winning a Belgian Cup, five championships and five Belgian Supercups. After a brief stint at rivals KV Oostende, he moved to Olympiacos in 2017 on a permanent basis. He has also collected 13 appearances in the Belgian national team. A negative note however, the now 35-year-old in the 2016/17 season remained sidelined for 104 days due to a cruciate ligament rupture.
Strakosha could find relief with an experienced goalkeeper like Proto however, who would be ready to back him up whenever needed.
