Coach Maurizio Sarri is expecting some transfer market activity by Lazio this month, wanting some reinforcements for his squad.
As reported by Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the 63-year-old Italian coach made it clear after the loss to Inter on Sunday that some players in the Biancocelesti squad were unsuited to his style of football, and so he wants some fresh blood in the team.
Two names in particular have been mentioned to Lazio’s management; Empoli’s Fabiano Parisi and Hellas Verona’s Nicolò Casale. Francesco Acerbi has struggled to adapt to Sarri’s system and he is now out with a serious injury.
Sarri is preparing for a real squad revolution in the summer, wanting a new goalkeeper, regista, midfielder and backup striker. Some players will need to be sold, and the main candidates for now are Vedat Muriqi and Manuel Lazzari, although no concrete offers have arrived for either yet.
The 63-year-old Italian coach will sign a contract extension with Lazio soon, which will tie him to the club until 2025, and so he’s expecting some work from the club in this month’s transfer window.
