The 25-year-old Fares, who is contracted to the Biancocelesti until 2025, made 21 Serie A appearances last season, for a total of 1138 minutes. He struggled for consistent minutes, only playing a full 90 minutes three times.

Lazio are currently searching for new full-backs better suited to coach Maurizio Sarri’s system, including free agent Elseid Hysaj, who is close to signing with the Roman club.
