Lazio president Claudio Lotito is preparing to offer a two-year contract to Gennaro Gattuso should tomorrow’s meeting with Simone Inzaghi not bear fruit.

As reported by Italian radio broadcaster Radiosei (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the Biancocelesti president will meet with Inzaghi tomorrow in a decisive meeting that will determine the future of the 45-year-old Italian coach.

A renewal for Inzaghi currently seems unlikely considering the less ambitious Europa League project and a salary lower than the one offered back in February when qualification to the Champions League was still possible.

As such, Lotito has prepared a two-year deal with an option for a third for former Napoli coach Gennaro Gattuso, who left the Partenopei just after the season’s conclusion.

Talks between Lotito and Gattuso have been going on for some weeks now, despite the expected denials, as the Biancocelesti president’s esteem for the 43-year-old Italian coach is well known.

Bologna coach Sinisa Mihajlovic is said to be the top alternative.
