Kepa Arrizabalaga is still Lazio’s number one target in their hunt for a new goalkeeper but they’ve also highlighted a number of other options.
The Biancocelesti are set to lose both Thomas Strakosha and Pepe Reina at the end of this season, when both players’ contracts expire with the club, and so a significant investment will be made to strengthen the position in the upcoming summer transfer window.
As reported by Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24) earlier today, Kepa is Lazio’s focus ahead of the summer but his high wage demands are something that cannot be ignored, meaning that Chelsea would need to contribute at least a little.
Other options Lazio are considering include PSG’s Sergio Rico and Atalanta’s Marco Carnesecchi. Another idea is Udinese veteran Marco Silvestri. All three of these players being significantly more accessible than Kepa.
The Biancocelesti have a few months to plan for the summer, when a much needed overhaul will take place in Rome.
