West Ham defender Fabian Balbuena discussed Lazio’s possible interest in him in an interview with radio broadcaster Versus Radio (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today.

The 29-year-old Paraguayan looked ahead to his future and touched on the links with the Biancocelesti.

We will certainly sit down with the management in the next few days to talk about it, West Ham have an option to renew the contract.

I’ve never received anything from Lazio, I’ve only read the rumours on social media.

Balbuena has been linked with Lazio since 2018, when the player seemed like the most suitable defender to replace Dutchman Stefan de Vrij, who joined Inter.

Contracted to West Ham until the end of the season, the Paraguayan defender has made 16 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 1440 minutes.

In that time, he has scored one goal and helped the side keep six clean sheets.
