Serie B side Perugia have opened talks with Lazio for redundant forward Simone Palombi.

As reported by Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the Biancocelesti are working on thinning out their squad this month, with defender Nicolo Armini joining Piacenza on loan, and now the club are working on finding a new home for Palombi as well.

The 25-year-old Italian striker had a good season last campaign on loan with Pisa but the Serie B side decided not to activate the buy option clause, leaving him to return to Rome.

Perugia sporting director Marco Giannitti contacted Lazio for the 25-year-old Palombi today, also requesting information. Whilst no offers have arrived yet, there is a chance that the Biancocelesti youth product will leave the club for good this month.
