If either Felipe Caicedo or Vedat Muriqi leaves Lazio this summer, then the club will look to sign free agent Stevan Jovetic.

As reported by Italian radio broadcaster Radiosei (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the switch to coach Maurizio Sarri’s 4-3-3 means that both Caicedo and Muriqi are not needed, as only one will play backup to star striker Ciro Immobile.

Selling one of these two would also help the club fix their liquidity ratio a little, allowing them to be more active on the transfer market.

With Caicedo’s contract set to expire next year in 2022 and with no renewal on the horizon, the Ecuadorian may be the player sold in the coming weeks.

Lazio had previously considered Jovetic around 20 days ago; The Montenegrin forward is still a free agent after his contract expired with Monaco last month.

One issue, however, is his high salary demands, which could prove to be a decisive obstacle. Jovetic cannot be ruled out, however, as the market is unpredictable and the Biancocelesti may decide to take the risk with the former Fiorentina man.
