Today’s match against Atalanta could be Vedat Muriqi’s last game for Lazio, ahead of a possible departure this month.
As reported by Italian newspaper Il Messaggero (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the Biancocelesti are speeding up in their work to try and find a new home for the 27-year-old Kosovan forward, who has failed to convince coach Maurizio Sarri this season.
Once his departure is finalised on the basis of a loan deal with a buy option attached, the Biancocelesti will look to bring in a new backup striker.
The Roman club have a number of targets, like Mainz’s Jonathan Burkardt and Red Bull Salzburg’s Benjamin Sesko, but nothing can happen until the Kosovan forward has been transferred. Updates are expected in the coming days, with little over a week left in the transfer window.
