Lazio’s Luiz Felipe Is One of Two Defenders Inter Are Targeting for Next Summer

Lazio defender Luiz Felipe is one of two defenders that Inter are interested in making a move for next summer.

As reported by Italian radio broadcaster Radiosei (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, Simone Inzaghi’s side are looking for a new centre back and have identified both Borussia Mönchengladbach’s Matthias Ginter and the Brazilian defender as their top two options.

Both players have contracts expiring next year and so Inter are able to open contract discussions in the January transfer window.

Lazio are looking to avoid this and are currently in the process of agreeing a contract renewal with Luiz Felipe, but talks are dragging on slowly.

The 24-year-old Luiz Felipe, who has been with Lazio since 2016, has made 16 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 1410 minutes. In that time, he has picked up five yellow cards, one red card and helped the side keep four clean sheets.
