Newcastle Face Competition From Torino for Departing Lazio Goalkeeper Strakosha

Thomas Strakosha has no shortage of options as both Newcastle United and Torino set their sights on him ahead of the summer transfer window.

The 27-year-old Albanian shot stopper’s contract expires with Lazio at the end of this season and currently a renewal doesn’t seem close, meaning it’s likely he’ll leave on a free transfer in the summer, ending a decade-long stay in the Italian capital.

As reported by Italian newspaper Tuttosport (via LazioNews24), Torino are seriously interested in picking up Strakosha once his contract expires with Lazio as they’re looking for a talented goalkeeper who knows Serie A well.

The Albanian fits this bill perfectly but things won’t be simple for the Granata as they’re facing competition from a newly enriched Newcastle side, who are looking to significantly rebuild their squad in the summer following the Saudi PIF investment.

Updates are expected over the coming months, especially as Lazio continue to debate offering him an attractive new contract.
