Simone Palombi was officially loaned out to Serie B newcomers U.S. Lecce. After starting last season with Lazio, making 3 appearances, he was loaned out in January to Serie B’s Salernitana, compiling 1 goal and 2 assists in 14 appearances for the club. Palombi will once again play in Italy’s second division this upcoming season, and with possibly more playing time than last year, the 22-year-old center forward will try once and for all to prove to the Lazio board that his future still does belong in the biancoceleste colors.
