Lazio midfielder Luis Alberto will remain a focal point of Maurizio Sarri’s team.
As reported by Italian radio broadcaster Radiosei (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the 28-year-old Spaniard can still find space in many variations of Sarri’s system, whether in a 4-3-3, 4-3-1-2 or 4-3-2-1 formation.
The player’s skills, passing, shooting and general intelligence will all be essential for Sarri.
Sarri has previously used Mirko Valdifiori, Jorginho, sometimes N’Golo Kante and Blaise Matuidi all as a regista in this past, and Luis Alberto could fill that role in the Biancocelesti squad.
The 62-year-old Italian coach will decide during this summer’s pre-season training camp, as the Spanish midfielder could also play further upfield behind the strikers in a 4-3-1-2 formation.
In the event of Joaquin Correa’s sale, Sarri is likely to use a 4-3-3 system, with two wide forwards and an attacking midfielder in addition to Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
Whilst it’s a little too early to say what Sarri’s Lazio will be like, it’s clear that Luis Alberto will play a key part in it.
