Lazio midfielder Luis Alberto is set to be the star of the show in the upcoming match against AC Milan, following their interest in him this summer.

As reported by Italian newspaper Il Messaggero (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the Rossoneri were one of the clubs interested in the 28-year-old Spaniard early on in this summer’s transfer window, contacting him through intermediaries to express their interest.

The idea faded when Lazio president Claudio Lotito’s valuation of the player was confirmed, despite the fact that the Spanish midfielder is not one of his favourite players.

Since then Luis Alberto has been different, being hard-working and committed, trying to convince Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri to trust him, despite an initially shaky relationship.

Being benched in the season opener against Empoli is proof of that, but in the following match against Spezia, his one goal and three assists have dispelled any of Sarri’s doubts.
