When a manager departs for a new project at another club, it’s not out of the norm that they want to pursue a player that they had at their previous job. With former Lazio manager Simone Inzaghi now leaving for Inter Milan, it seems as though he would like to take someone with him.
According to Tuttomercatoweb, Inzaghi wants to take Lazio striker Felipe Caicedo, who has one more year left on his contract, as Inzaghi would like the veteran goal scorer to back up Romelu Lukaku.
Since joining Lazio in 2017, Caicedo has made 139 appearances and has scored 33 goals while registering 15 assists. Transfermarkt puts the 32-year-old’s value at €4-million. Nonetheless, the final decision on Caicedo will likely come down to whoever takes over the managerial role at Lazio.
Whether it’s Maurizio Sarri or someone else, they’ll need to decide on Caicedo’s future with the Rome-based club. With Lazio looking at other scoring options to support Ciro Immobile, perhaps they could depart with the ageing forward.
