Lazio is well expected to go out and acquire a starting left-back over the upcoming summer transfer window.
The Biancocelesti are now in the rumor mill with yet another left-back as the Italian-based outlet TuttoMercatoWeb notes that club officials are interested in signing soon-to-be-former Crystal Palace defender Patrick van Aanholt.
Lazio has already reached out to Van Aanholt’s representatives to establish preliminary contacts about signing the defender to a free transfer deal. The Biancocelesti are well set on hauling in the Dutch talent, who will become a free agent on July 1.
Van Aanholt has spent the past five seasons with Crystal Palace, where he emerged as the team’s perennial starting left-back.
Lazio has also been linked with the likes of Benfica left-back Nuno Tavares, so it remains to be seen whether club officials plan to sign the Portuguese talent or will opt to pursue Van Aanholt to a multi-year free transfer agreement.
For now, Van Aanholt is currently focused on helping the Netherlands national team pull off a deep run in the Euro 2020 tournament.
