Serie B Side Ascoli to Provide Como With Competition for Lazio Forward Gondo

Serie B side Ascoli are interested in signing Lazio forward Cedric Gondo, who is also wanted by Como.

As reported by Italian newspaper Il Resto del Carlino earlier today, the Biancocelesti are working to find a new home for the 24-year-old Ivorian forward, who returned to Rome from a two-year loan spell with Salernitana.

Due to the rules of Salernitana’s registration to Serie A, Lazio are not allowed to complete any deals with the Campania-based side this month, forcing them to find new homes for a variety of players, including Gondo.
