Lazio Set Sights on Hellas Verona’s Lasagna Following Failure to Sign Botheim

Lazio have set their sights on Hellas Verona forward Kevin Lasagna ahead of next month’s transfer window.

As reported by Italian radio broadcaster Radiosei (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the Biancocelesti are looking for a new backup striker to replace Vedat Muriqi and have had to find alternative options following the reports that Erik Botheim is only a step away from joining FK Krasnodar.

One of these options is the 29-year-old Lasagna, who joined Hellas Verona last January from Udinese on an 18-month loan deal with a conditional obligation to buy clause attached.

The Italian striker has only made four Serie A starts this season and has a market value of around €5 million, making a deal for him fairly accessible.

Lazio are also interested in Hellas Verona’s Nicolo Casale, so the two clubs are expected to enter talks once the January transfer window opens.

Lasagna has made 12 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 427 minutes. In that time, he has not directly contributed to a goal.
