Torino Keen on Lazio Goalkeeper Strakosha as Possible Replacement for Sirigu

Torino are interested in acquiring Lazio goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha as a possible replacement for Salvatore Sirigu.

As reported by Italian newspaper Tuttosport (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, it seems likely that the 26-year-old Strakosha will leave Rome this summer after falling out of favour in the Italian capital this season, losing his starting spot to veteran Pepe Reina.

With the Biancocelesti lining up possible replacements like Atalanta’s Pierluigi Gollini, Strakosha is likely to be one of the players sold over the coming months, especially considering that his contract expires at the end of next season.

Torino have identified the Albanian shot-stopper as a potential replacement for the 34-year-old Sirigu, who may depart this summer considering that his contract also expires in 2022.

It is likely that the negotiations between Torino and Lazio would be difficult considering the poor relationship between club presidents Urbano Cairo and Claudio Lotito.

Moreover, Strakosha would only leave Lazio for another top club that could guarantee him at least the Europa League, further complicating the possible deal.
