Perez and Robben move past Papu Gomez in pecking order to fill Felipe Anderson void?
Some love makes immense turns before becoming a reality. Three years ago, sporting director Igli Tare went on a mission to Spain to see Lucas Perez from Deportivo La Coruna. Irony of destiny, the Lazio director, however, had a greater liking for Luis Alberto. The playmaker now wears the biancoceleste, while Perez has ended up at Arsenal. Now, however, according to Italian newspaper Il Messaggero, the attacker of the Gunners can end up at Lazio.
The Spaniard had nine goals and eight assists in the last season in La Liga on loan at Deportivo. Igli Tare has never abandoned the idea of signing the player and he seems to have overcome even Wesley Moraes of Club Brugge in the pecking order. He costs less than what the Brazilian does: with 7 to 8 million euros, the attacker can arrive. Some whispers have initiated stating that a deal has already been concluded.
In addition, there is another player, much stronger, from Germany who is rumoured to have has already completed the first part of medical examinations secretly in the capital. This is Dutchman Arjen Robben of Bayern Munich. His contract with the German club expired at the end of 2019 with a rumoured fee of just over 4 million euros. However, there are doubts about his physical conditions.
In the coming hours, Tare is expected in Auronzo and Inzaghi can not wait to get news surrounding the void in the squad that needs to be filled. He specifically wants Papu Gomez at all costs, but Lotito will not pull out more than 10 million euros.
