Strakosha Will Start One More Game for Lazio Ahead of Probable Summer Move

Lazio goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha is set to start one more game this season, ahead of a probable summer move away from Rome.

As reported by Italian radio broadcaster Radiosei (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, coach Simone Inzaghi decided that both Strakosha and Pepe Reina will start two of the last four, now three, games of the season each, splitting the minutes between them.

The Albanian shot-stopper started against Parma on Wednesday and performed well, but now the Spanish veteran is set to start in the derby against Roma on Saturday evening.

This means that Strakosha will start against either Torino or Sassuolo, with Reina starting in the other match.

The 26-year-old Strakosha’s contract expires with the Biancocelesti at the end of next season and currently, there has been no talks of renewing it, meaning that it’s likely that he’ll be sold this summer to allow Lazio to generate some revenue.

Lazio would then look to sign a new goalkeeper in the summer, as Pepe Reina will not be the nailed-on starter for next season.
