Thomas Strakosha will not renew his contract with Lazio, forcing the club to begin their search for a replacement.
As reported by TuttoMercatoWeb earlier today, the 26-year-old Albanian shot-stopper has decided to leave the Biancocelesti on a free transfer at the end of the season, leaving the Roman club without a number one.
Lazio are beginning their search for a new goalkeeper and the hottest names currently are Cagliari’s Alessio Cragno and Empoli’s Guglielmo Vicario. Both will cost over €10 million, so it will not be a cheap fix for the Biancocelesti.
Napoli’s Alex Meret has been linked with Lazio a number of times in recent months, but a deal has never been close.
The Biancocelesti are also still interested in Chelsea’s Kepa Arrizabalaga, but a move would be very expensive, even if they signed him on loan.
Strakosha is able to sign a pre-contract with his new club from next week onwards when the January transfer window closes.
