Report: Lazio show interest for Howedes but Galatasaray in pole position

According to a new name is added to the Lazio transfer market list after the acquisitions of Milan Badelj and Joaquin Correa. This is Benedikt Howedes, who after the unfortunate season at Juventus (only 3 appearances in the league for him) was not redeemed by the Bianconeri and returned to Shalke 04, who holds his card. Galatasaray is moving quickly to try and secure a deal for the German international center-half, who are strongly interested in the player. However, there is competition from several clubs.

From Turkey they also report a hypothetical inclusion of Lazio, who are ready to challenge Everton, Bayer Leverkusen and Hoffenheim among other clubs involves: an extra opponent for the Giallorossi of Istanbul, who see their main objective increasingly threatened by continuous inclusion of other suitors.

It is hard to believe the Biancocelesti want to buy another defender, since at least numerically the backlog is full, without neglecting the fact – moreover – that the salary of Howedes is out of the company parameters. We will see if this push for a signing sees players such as Bastos, Wallace, Lukaku, Basta, or Patric leave the club.
