Atalanta’s Carnesecchi Jumps to Pole Position in Lazio’s Race to Find a Goalkeeper

Marco Carnesecchi is having a good season on loan with Cremonese and Lazio now believe he’s the right man to replace Thomas Strakosha.

The 21-year-old Italian shot stopper is currently impressing in Serie B whilst on loan, keeping nine clean sheets in 29 league outings this campaign. He will return to Atalanta at the end of this season, ready to take the next step in his career.

Eight Games Remain as a New Era for Lazio Approaches

As reported by Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24), Carnesecchi is now Lazio’s top choice to replace Thomas Strakosha and Pepe Reina in the upcoming summer transfer window. The club believe he’d be a strong fit for Maurizio Sarri’s tactical system in the Italian capital.

Sarri’s dream option is Chelsea shot stopper Kepa Arrizabalaga, but the Spaniard is too expensive and so the Italian coach has given the green light for a move for the 21-year-old Italian.

In order to convince Atalanta, Lazio are ready to pay around €10 million for Carnesecchi, a sign of his quality and their belief in his potential.
