The Truth About Lazio’s January Market: No Zaza & Kalinic, Sarri Not Keen on Kurzawa

The majority of players linked with a move to Lazio are unlikely to arrive next month.

As reported by Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla last night, coach Maurizio Sarri is not interested in signing Torino forward Simone Zaza nor Hellas Verona’s Nikola Kalinic, with nether player particularly fitting his tactical system and neither being his requests. Kevin Lasagna also falls into this category.

It’s also untrue that Sarri is keen to sign Paris Saint-Germain left back Layvin Kurzawa; the 62-year-old Italian coach already rejected the Frenchman a few years ago when he was at Juventus, when a swap deal was suggested with Mattia De Sciglio.

If Kurzawa joins next month it will not be because of the Lazio coach. Sarri is a big fan of Chelsea full back Emerson Palmieri and he’s hoping to sign the player next summer. The Biancocelesti coach is also keen on Lille’s Reinildo Mandava, whose contract expires with the Ligue 1 club in the summer, who is also wanted by Napoli.
