Lazio’s Match Against Atalanta Could Be Muriqi’s Last Game for the Club

By Apollo Heyes -

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.

A move to CSKA Moscow is no longer on the cards, so Lazio are hoping to sell Muriqi to interested clubs in France or England instead.

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.

  1. Burkardt isn’t available, Mainz isn’t willing to sell him in this winter transfer period and the idea that Lazio or rather said Lotito puts in enough money to convince them otherwise is just an utopian idea. Sarri and us Lazio fans are getting mocked by Lotito and Tare. 65-67 million in total Lazio will likely have spent if Muriqi, Vavro and Akpa Akpro will serve out their contracts.

    The moment a serious organisation starts to investigate the transfers of Muriqi and Akpa Akpro Lazio will likely be in hot water.

    Lazio is getting led by someone who doesn’t have the club’s interests at heart. Cragnotti drowned the club in debts, Lotito managed with contacts to keep the club from going bankrupt despite likely never truly putting any of his own money in the club. I believe prestige and self enrichment was and still is, his main motivation.
