Acerbi Moves Closer to Lazio Departure With Inter on the Horizon

Francesco Acerbi is increasingly moving closer to a Lazio departure amid interest from Simone Inzaghi’s Inter.

The 34-year-old Italian centre back’s agents sat down with Lazio’s management last month and they agreed to listen to any transfer offers for the former Sassuolo man, who has fallen out with the Biancocelesti faithful this season.

With Patric and Luiz Felipe also both set to leave in the summer, Lazio are planning to rejuvenate their defence, starting with Milan captain Alessio Romagnoli.

Acerbi has made 28 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 2357 minutes. In that time, he’s scored three goals, provided two assists and helped the side keep eight clean sheets.
