Juventus May Look to Sign Lazio Coach Simone Inzaghi This Summer

Juventus may look to sign Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi after his contract expires with the Biancocelesti this summer.

According to a report from Italian newspaper Il Messaggero (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the 45-year-old Italian coach has still failed to finalise his contract renewal with the Roman club despite having apparently reached an agreement with president Claudio Lotito.

In a recent interview, Inzaghi highlighted how he will sign the new deal at the end of this season, but there is a chance that he could decide to end his time in Rome at the end of next month.

Juventus are looking to replace current incumbent Andrea Pirlo at the end of this season, after missing out on the Scudetto and potentially dropping out of the top four. Inzaghi is friends with sporting director Fabio Paratici and may be tempted to join the Italian giants.

Premier League side Leicester City are also keen, creating some anxiety around the Lazio camp at the possibility of Inzaghi’s departure.

Qualifying for next season’s Champions League may change the situation, however, as Inzaghi may decide to stay with the Biancocelesti and push for strong reinforcements in the summer.
