Lazio Coach Inzaghi Has Identified Torino’s Izzo & Club Brugge’s Ricca As January Targets

Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi has identified two reinforcements that he would like to sign in the upcoming January transfer window, according to a report from Italian media outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi earlier today.

The report details how the first reinforcement that the 44-year-old Italian coach wants is 28-year-old Torino centre-back Armando Izzo. 

The Italian defender, who is contracted to the Granata until 2024, has hardly featured this campaign under coach Marco Giampaolo and has been placed on the transfer list. 

Last campaign, Izzo made 37 appearances across all competitions, scoring three goals and helping the side keep nine clean sheets. One issue is that the relationship between Lazio president Claudio Lotito and Torino president Urbano Cairo is incredibly poor, making negotiations seem impossible for now.

The other target is 26-year-old Club Brugge left-back Federico Ricca, the report continues. 

Inzaghi noticed him whilst analyzing the Belgian side during the Champions League group stage and appreciates his versatility, being able to play as both a centre back and left wing-back.

He would cost around €5 million. Ricca has made 11 appearances so far this season, providing one assist in that time.
