The latest reports from Cittaceleste are suggesting that Lazio and Papu Gomez are not meant to be. Reports earlier this week indicated that Gomez and Lazio were close to a deal; yet it appears as though he will remain at Atalanta BC.
Speaking to Cittaceleste, Gomez’s agent said “There is no agreement with us and neither Atalanta” and the club have reportedly promised head coach Gian Piero Gasperini that they will do whatever is in their power to keep the Argentinian at the club.
With this news, Lazio are turning their attention to number #1 target, Gelson Martins. Martins, 23, has been identified as the ideal replacement for Felipe Anderson; and he is available on a free transfer. Martins terminated his contract with Sporting Lisbon after an attack on the team’s training ground by a group of ultras last month.
