According to what has been reported by CittaCeleste.it, Lazio are interested in signing Lyon defender Rafael da Silva. Rafael, 28, is a right-back by trade and could offer some depth in the role where currently the Biancocelesti have just Adam Marusic, Dusan Basta and Patric; none of which stand out as better than the Lyon defender, bar Marusic at his best.
Rafael signed for Lyon from Manchester United in 2015, for a fee of just €3.2m and has quickly become a key player for Les Gones. The Brazilian-Portuguese right-back would be an interesting signing for Lazio, with his contract expiring in 2019 and therefore is available on a free transfer in the summer; or for a cut price in January.
