Lazio president Claudio Lotito and former Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri met on Thursday to discuss the Biancocelesti’s managerial vacancy.
The Italian-based outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi notes that the two sides are in an “agreement” and that Sarri is currently working on assembling his coaching staff.
One major detail has emerged from the meeting in regards to Sarri’s early tactical plans with the club should he take over as its new manager.
As per La Lazio Siamo Noi, Sarri is opting to line up Lazio in a 4-3-1-2 setup, which would see a central attacking midfielder in this formation.
This would be a drastic change for Lazio considering that the team had been structured under now-former manager Simone Inzaghi’s 3-5-2 setup for the past couple of seasons.
More so, Sarri is much a fan of the likes of Luis Alberto, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Francesco Acerbi. This may hint that Sarri would prefer to build his team around these three Lazio talents and wants the club to keep this trio past the upcoming summer transfer window.
For the moment, Lazio still has a managerial vacancy, but it seems as if only a matter of time before the Biancocelesti officially announces that Sarri will replace Inzaghi as its new manager.
