These include AC Milan and Fiorentina, both of whom have already taken information about him, and the latter have even tried to get Patric in the past.

The 28-year-old Patric, who joined Lazio in 2015 from Barcelona, has made eight appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 490 minutes. In that time, he has scored one goal and proven his tactical flexibility to coach Maurizio Sarri.
