Lazio will not sign Filip Kostic and so have turned their attention to Mattia Zaccagni and Josip Brekalo.
As reported by Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio last night, Eintracht Frankfurt did not accept the Biancocelesti’s offer for the 28-year-old Serbian winger, not wanting to deprive themselves of the player, despite his attempts to force through a move.
With the transfer market closing tonight at midnight, the Roman club will have to move fast to secure a winger before the closure of the window.

Today will be a decisive day for Lazio, with coach Maurizio Sarri still waiting for a new forward.
