Italian journalist and transfer market expert Gianluca Di Marzio discussed Torino’s interest in Lazio wing back Mohamed Fares whilst speaking with Italian broadcaster Sky Sports Italia (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today.
Torino asked Lazio for Fares but they have no intention of letting him go and the player does not want to leave the Biancocelesti either.
The 24-year-old Fares, who is contracted to the Biancocelesti until 2025, formerly worked with Torino technical director Davide Vagnati when the pair were at SPAL.
Lazio have no interest in giving up on the Algerian wing-back, who joined from SPAL in the summer transfer window, as the left wing-back role is currently one of the most problematic areas of the squad.
With the injury to captain Senad Lulic, currently, only Fares and Adam Marusic can play in the role. Sporting director Igli Tare is currently searching for a reinforcement to the role, with a focus on players under the age of 22, to avoid having to take up a spot in the Serie A squad registration list.
Fares has made 13 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 719 minutes. In that time, he has provided one assist and picked up five yellow cards.
