Torino are pushing to sign Lazio full back Manuel Lazzari and an exchange deal with Simone Zaza could happen next month.
As reported by Italian newspaper Tuttosport (via LazioNews24) earlier today, Granata sporting director Davide Vagnati is trying incredibly hard to bring the 28-year-old Italian full back to Turin in the upcoming winter transfer window, believing he’d be the perfect fit for Ivan Juric’s squad.
One issue is the poor relationship between Lazio president Claudio Lotito and Torino president Urbano Cairo, but the Biancocelesti’s search for a new backup striker could force them to swallow their pride and negotiate with the Piedmont side.
An interesting idea is an equal exchange between Lazzari and Zaza. The 30-year-old Italian striker, who is contracted to Torino until 2023, has hardly featured this season under Juric and so an exchange deal could suit all parties.
Updates are expected over the coming weeks, with Lazio pushing hard to bring a new backup striker to Rome before the end of next month.
