Eight Games Remain as a New Era for Lazio Approaches

Lazio have eight games ahead of them before the windows of change will blow through the streets of Rome.

The Biancocelesti are desperately fighting to finish in the European qualification spots but the 3-0 derby collapse to intercity rivals Roma on the weekend did not help their case. They now sit 7th in the table, two points behind both Atalanta and the Giallorossi.

As highlighted by Il Messaggero (via LazioNews24), Lazio will reflect upon the future of a number of players in the summer, starting with those whose contracts are expiring.

Lucas Leiva, Thomas Strakosha, Patric and Luiz Felipe are all destined to leave Rome in the summer, while star midfielders Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Luis Alberto could be sold; the former is wanted by top teams like Paris Saint-Germain whilst the latter has a difficult relationship with Sarri.

Manuel Lazzari and Francesco Acerbi also seem to have reached the end of their cycle in the Italian capital, meaning a real squad overhaul is on the horizon, assuming president Claudio Lotito backs Sarri in the transfer market.

Sarri wants five or six new players in the summer, keen to start a new era at Lazio, but first the team have eight games to finish the season on a high note.
