Lazio have opened talks with expiring Inter shot stopper Samir Handanovic as they look for a new goalkeeper.
As reported by Italian media outlet Calciomercato.com last night, the 37-year-old Slovenian shot stopper’s contract expires with the Nerazzurri at the end of this season and it’s unclear whether he’ll sign a short-term renewal or leave on a free transfer next summer.
Lazio are still looking for a new goalkeeper, with both Thomas Strakosha and Pepe Reina’s contracts expiring in June next year. As such, they are still on the search for a new number one and so have started exploratory contacts with Handanovic.
Initial talks have only just begun but the idea could begin to take shape as next month’s transfer window develops, with sporting director Igli Tare looking for low-cost options.
The 37-year-old Handanovic, who has been with Inter since the summer of 2012, has made 25 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 2250 minutes. In that time, he has conceded 20 goals and kept 11 clean sheets.
