Empoli goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario is at the top of Lazio’s list as they search for a new number one.

The number one target so far is the 25-year-old Vicario. The Italian goalkeeper, who is on loan from Cagliari, can be signed permanently by Empoli for €10 million, and they could then sell him onwards.

Lazio would be willing to pay around €15 million for Vicario, believing him to be the right choice for Sarri’s system. Updates are expected after the January transfer window ends, with the Roman club having a few months to find the perfect player.
