Expiring Napoli Forward Mertens Tops Lazio’s List of Possible Free Transfer Targets

By Apollo Heyes -

Lazio are keeping an eye on a number of soon-to-be free agents ahead of the summer, with Dries Mertens proving the most exciting.

Biancocelesti coach Maurizio Sarri wants six to eight new players to arrive in the upcoming transfer window, wanting to revolutionise the squad in the Italian capital. Given the financial constraints and the restrictive liquidity index, the Roman club are prepared to pick up some free agents.

As reported by Italian newspaper Leggo (via LazioNews24), Mertens is the most exciting name on Lazio’s list of possible free transfers. He was a favourite of Sarri during their time together at Napoli and he would fit well in the Roman squad.

Another idea is Andrea Belotti, who seems unlikely to renew his deal with Torino. He would be a strong addition to the Biancocelesti and he knows talismanic striker Ciro Immobile well.

Finally, Federico Bernardeschi’s name has also come up; the Italian winger cannot seem to find an agreement with Juventus, so he’s ready to consider a new adventure elsewhere.
