Possible Left-Back Exchange Deal Involving Lazio’s Fares & Cagliari’s Lykogiannis

By Apollo Heyes -

Lazio are considering exchanging left-backs with Cagliari, sending Mohamed Fares to Sardinia in exchange for Charalampos Lykogiannis.

As reported by Italian radio broadcaster Radiosei (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the Biancocelesti have already been linked with the Rossoblu’s Alessio Cragno and Nahitan Nandez, and now could even do another deal with the Sardinian club.

The 25-year-old Fares has struggled to impress in his first season in Rome and so could be exchanged for the 27-year-old Lykogiannis, whose contract expires with Cagliari at the end of next season.

In Sardinian Fares would be reunited with former SPAL coach Leonardo Semplici, allowing him to play under the coach who helped him become a hot prospect.

The Greek left-back, who has been with Cagliari since 2018, has made 32 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 2380 minutes. In that time, he has scored four goals and provided two assists.
