A number of Serie A clubs are having issues with the liquidity index including Lazio.
The liquidity index is the ratio between assets and short-term liabilities of teams. In January, only those who had a liquidity ratio of 0.6 could make transfer market moves, meaning that the assets had to cover at least 60% of the expenses, a condition that blocked many deals.
As reported by La Repubblica (via LazioNews24), three teams would have difficulty guaranteeing registration in Serie A due to the liquidity index: Sampdoria, Genoa and Lazio. Six other clubs are also at great risk.
The FIGC will have to guarantee corrective measures to avoid significant problems with a number of teams and the liquidity index will be fixed between 0.6 and 0.7, and the negative balance can be reduced with a positive one during the transfer market.
Updates are expected over the coming months, as the COVID pandemic continues to have significant implications on the finances of Serie A clubs.
