Patric: Fiorentina and Benfica join race for Lazio defender
According to what has been reported by CalcioMercato, Fiorentina and Benfica have joined the race to sign Spanish defender Patric from Lazio.
It has been reported in the past week that the Biancocelesti were eager to include Patric in a potential deal to sign SPAL wing-back Manuel Lazzari; who Simone Inzaghi considers to be one of the most top priorities this summer.
Patric is, as per the reports, valued at around €3m and it appears to be a matter of Lazio wanting to thin the squad and sending the Spaniard elsewhere. At just 3 million euros, he is certainly an attainable and affordable target for the likes of Fiorentina and Benfica, the latter who Lazio are already dealing with in relation to the sales of Portuguese duo Bruno Jordao and Pedro Neto.
