Jordan Lukaku’s farewell to Rome seems closer and closer: his destination? The Premier League, specifically Newcastle. Lazio are now aiming to reinforce the left flank and with only a few days remaining in the transfer window, they must act quickly. According to Tutto Mercato Web, Monaco have proposed Italian defender Antonio Barreca to Lazio as a replacement for the Belgian defender.
Barreca was the player who was intending on making a switch to Newcastle, but it looks as if the Toons decided on Lukaku, thus leaving the player stranded in France. Transferring to the Ligue 1 club this past summer, Monaco have struggled this season and are currently sitting second from the bottom in a relegation spot. With confidence lost and chaos surrounding the club, Barreca has only made seven Ligue 1 appearances so far this season.
The profile of Barreca will is said to be evaluated by Igli Tare in the coming days – a player with experience in the Serie A TIM, Barreca is just 23 years of age and would be a proper signing for Simone Inzaghi’s Biancocelesti side.
