Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri wants to sign a new defender this month, with Arsenal’s Sead Kolasinac and Fiorentina’s German Pezzella both linked.

As reported by Italian newspaper Il Messaggero (via LazioNews24) earlier today, Sarri has asked the Biancocelesti to provide him with one more defensive reinforcement this month, wanting to strengthen the department a little before the start of the season.

The two players that have been underlined as strong options by Lazio are Fiorentina captain German Pezzella and Arsenal defender Sead Kolasinac, who is destined to leave the Gunners this month.
