Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi’s contract renewal stalemate with president Claudio Lotito has not gone unnoticed, with Fiorentina and Napoli in contact with the coach.
According to a report from Italian radio broadcaster Radiosei (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the international break seemed like a good opportunity for the 44-year-old Italian coach to discuss the deal with president Lotito, but he has been caught up by commitments in court between the Covid-19 test case and the appeal regarding a default win over Torino.
Lotito’s new contract offer has been on the table for some time and the Biancocelesti president is seemingly unwilling to raise the offer at all. Inzaghi, on the other hand, is waiting for a new meeting, with hopes of tweaking some of the details slightly of the new contract.
This period has not passed by unnoticed, and now interested clubs are starting to speed up in the race to secure Inzaghi’s signature. Fiorentina and Napoli have both been in contact with the coach and would like him to lead the squad next season.
In addition to the interest in Serie A, there’s also an unnamed offer from abroad that could further tempt the 44-year-old Italian.
Inzaghi’s path out of Rome has now been defined, but there is still hope that his love for the Biancocelesti will prove strong enough to see him sign a new deal soon.
