Born in 1996, the Italian has been owned by the Biancocelesti for his whole career. However, despite being a homegrown player (who was deemed to have the potential to become a starter in the first team), Lombardi has made just 19 total appearances with Lazio; all of which came in the 2016/17 season.

Not given the time or space to prove himself, he has been – and continues to be – a player who is loaned out; he has played for the likes of Trapani, US Anconitana, Benevento, Venezia FC, and most recently, Salernitana. As a result, the sports outlet further claims that Sampdoria President Massimo Ferrero is ready to make an offer for the 24-year-old, whose contract expires in the summer of 2022.

This year, Lombardi has made 19 total appearances with the Granata, scoring three goals and providing four assists.
