Maurizio Sarri is a big fan of Vitinha and he’s hoping Lazio pick up the Porto midfielder in the upcoming summer transfer window.
The Biancocelesti need a new playmaker or regista in the midfield as Lucas Leiva will leave the club on a free transfer at the end of June. Danilo Cataldi is a valued member of the squad under Sarri, but the Roman side also want someone with a little more creative flair.
The 22-year-old Portuguese midfielder is represented by super agent Jorge Mendes and has a market value of €25 million, a figure that would make a deal complicated for the Biancocelesti, who endlessly have issues with the liquidity index.
Should Sergej Milinkovic-Savic be sold in the summer however, Vitinha could become a serious possibility.
