Lazio are considering signing Benevento goalkeeper Lorenzo Montipò to replace Albanian shot stopper Thomas Strakosha.

According to a report from Italian newspaper Il Messaggero (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the 25-year-old Albanian’s future hangs in the balance as the goalkeeper has been unable to find consistent playing time this season.

Between a battle with Covid-19 and other physical problems, Strakosha’s progress at Lazio has been halted, and Simone Inzaghi’s preference of Pepe Reina has also kept him on the sidelines for much of this season.

As such, Lazio are considering possible replacements for the 25-year-old Strakosha, with one option being Benevento’s Montipò.

Montipò has made 26 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 2340 minutes. In that time, he has conceded 48 goals and kept six clean sheets.
