As reported by Spanish newspaper Diario AS and Portuguese newspaper Record (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the Biancocelesti are still interested in strengthening their full-back position, despite the arrival of Elseid Hysaj.
With Stefan Radu moving to a central defender role, the only players for the full-back roles are Hysaj, Manuel Lazzari, Adam Marusic and Dimitrije Kamenovic, with the Serbian still an unknown due to his young age.
Due to this, Tare is still interested in signing the 25-year-old Grimaldo, who has been on the Albanian sporting director’s radar for some time now.
Grimaldo, who is contracted to Benfica until 2023, made 31 Portuguese Liga appearances last season, for a total of 2466 minutes. In that time, he scored two goals and provided 10 assists. He averaged 10.84 progressive carries per 90 minutes last campaign, showing his strong offensive dribbling.
