The Lazio transfer market is finally starting to initiate. This coming week could be decisive both to the inbound and outbound player: the sale of Felipe Anderson to West Ham would allow Lazio to turn the rumors into facts, and ideas into talks.
Among the incoming player talk, is that of Atalanta’s Remo Freuler: the Swiss midfielder who is currently busy with his nation at the World Cup in Russia. The talk in Bergamo say that Lazio is interested, and that at the end of the World Cup, a very attractive offer could come for the player, who himself sees a move to Rome as a qualitative leap for his career.

According to the latest reports from CittaCeleste, Lazio have made the first offer for Brazilian starlet Luan as they look to replace Felipe Anderson. Luan joins a shortlist of targets and supposedly Lazio have tabled a €15m offer for his services.

Gremio, however, value the player closer to €25m and it is thought that Lazio may choose to pursue other targets first, before making another bid.

The latest reports from Radiosei suggest that Frosinone have now emerged as favourites, above Bologna and Parma, to sign Lazio’s Dusan Basta. Basta, 33, has a contract expiring in the Summer of 2019 and Lazio will look to offload the Serbian whilst they still can get money in return.

Speaking to microphones from TV2 Valon Berisha said “In Salzburg I gave and got everything I expected. Now the time may have come for a new challenge”, adding that “Sampdoria is very interested. I have to make a decision about it with my family. But I know they are very interested. [Newcastle] have been following me for a long time, I know there is interest but there is no negotiation, I have yet to decide. England, however, is a dream and we will see what happens.”

The stumbling block appears to be SEG – the player’s agency, the same as Stefan de Vrij’s – who Lazio are reportedly on poor terms with.

The most certain deal we Lazio fans can expect is the switch of Francesco Acerbi from Sassuolo to Lazio. Filling a homegrown quota position and a part-replacement for Stefan de Vrij, Acerbi would be a valuable signing for the biancoceleste. Now, the latest reports from Radiosei indicate that Acerbi wants to move to Lazio, and nothing else.

He has reportedly told Sassuolo owner Squinzi that he wants to leave and has thanked him for the experience in Emilia. This came after rumours that Squinzi was looking to potentially sign Acerbi to a contract extension, for his continued efforts in recent seasons.
