The Argentinian midfielder did not convince coach Maurizio Sarri in the pre-season training camp last summer and so he has hardly featured this campaign for Lazio, playing only eight minutes in the season opener against Empoli back in August.

The 28-year-old Escalante never particularly settled in Rome following his arrival on a free transfer back in September 2020. He made 31 appearances in total for the Biancocelesti in his 18 months in the Italian capital, for a total of 1022 minutes. In that time, he provided one assist.
