The 25-year-old Thorsby has made 35 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 2763 minutes. In that time, he has scored three goals and provided one assist.

Thorsby is a strong, defensive-minded midfielder with good pressing and aerial ability. He would likely slot into the Lazio squad as a replacement for the ageing Lucas Leiva.
