As the 2020-21 season reaches its conclusion, clubs have an eye on the summer as they look for ways to improve their squad.
For Lazio, the Italian side could circle a long-term solution at the goalkeeper position.
Pepe Reina is a serviceable goalkeeper, but at 37-years-old, the Biancocelesti need to find someone for the future.
After losing the positional battle to Reina, Thomas Strakosha isn’t the goalkeeper long-term fir the club either. With his contract expiring next summer, Lazio are looking more and more likely to sell him.
Lazio News reports that one name that the Rome-based club is monitoring is Chelsea FC’s Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Edouard Mendy seems to be the starter from now on for the English club. As a result, they’ll likely want to offload the player’s wages and cut ties on a lousy investment.
According to Transfermarkt, Arrizabalaga’s transfer value is at €13 million. The Spain international has made 12 appearances for Chelsea while conceding nine goals.
The goalkeeper needs a change of scenery to revive his career, and Lazio could provide that next season.
