Botheim is considered the ideal replacement for redundant forward Vedat Muriqi, who seems destined to leave Lazio in next month’s transfer window.

The Biancocelesti’s other top target is 23-year-old Italian defender Casale, who is contracted to Hellas Verona until 2026. The player has impressed with his consistent and reliable defensive performances for the Gialloblu this campaign, making 18 appearances across all competitions.

Casale is tactically flexible, able to play as a centre back, left back and right back, making him an attractive option for coach Maurizio Sarri, who wants some defensive reinforcements.
