Lazio’s two options to replace Vedat Muriqi in January are Bodø/Glimt’s Erik Botheim or Red Bull Salzburg’s Benjamin Sesko.

As reported by Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24) earlier today, coach Maurizio Sarri wants the club to sign a new backup forward in the upcoming January Transfer Window, with the latest injury to Ciro Immobile highlighting the need for a reliable player.

The first option is Bodø/Glimt forward Erik Botheim, who scored three goals and provided three assists in two matches against Roma in the UEFA Conference League.

The other option is 18-year-old RB Salzburg forward Benjamin Sesko; standing at 194cm tall, the physically imposing striker has scored seven goals in 18 appearances across all competitions so far this campaign.
