Muriel Could Leave Atalanta Next Month With Lazio, Juventus, Inter & Milan All Keen

By Apollo Heyes -

Lazio are one of many clubs interested in signing Atalanta forward Luis Muriel in next month’s transfer window.

As reported by Italian media outlet Calciomercato.com earlier today, the 30-year-old Colombian forward has a less than idyllic relationship with coach Gian Piero Gasperini and the arrival of Jeremie Boga could push the player to leave the club in the upcoming January transfer window.

Many clubs are currently monitoring the situation, including Juventus, Lazio, Inter and AC Milan. Muriel’s contract expires with Atalanta in June 2023, so a deal may be fairly accessible.

The 30-year-old Muriel, who joined Atalanta in the summer of 2019 from Sevilla, has made 17 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 642 minutes. In that time, he has scored three goals and provided five assists.

Lazio are still searching for a new backup striker to replace Vedat Muriqi, who seems destined to leave the club in the January transfer market, and Muriel could be the perfect option.
