Sampdoria and Genoa are both serious about Lazio forward Felipe Caicedo, who is carefully considering his options.
As reported by Italian media outlet Calciomercato.it earlier today, the 32-year-old Ecuadorian forward seems destined to leave the Roman club this month, with coach Maurizio Sarri preferring Vedat Muriqi to be Ciro Immobile’s backup.
The 32-year-old Caicedo, also under pressure from his wife, likes it in Rome but wants to choose his future destination calmly. In this stalemate, Sampdoria have inserted themselves in the running, staging a classic transfer market Derby della Lanterna.
The ball is now in the Ecuadorian forward’s court, who is currently more inclined to stay at the club so that he can decide his next club in a year’s time as a free agent.
