Lazio’s search for a new goalkeeper has come down to two players as they zero in on their new number one.
The Biancocelesti know that both Pepe Reina and Thomas Strakosha are likely to depart at the end of the season, forcing them to find a new shot stopper. The Roman club have been considering a long list of ideas but now things have started to get more focused.
As reported by Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24), Lazio’s two remaining options now are Paris Saint-Germain’s Sergio Rico, who is currently on loan at Mallorca, and Atalanta’s Marco Carnesecchi, who is currently on loan at Cremonese.
Maurizio Sarri would prefer the 21-year-old Italian, who is valued at €15 million by the Bergamo side, but a deal may be harder to pull off as Atalanta still need to decide whether they want to lose the youngster or not.
Rico is significantly more affordable and would only cost around €4-5 million, being unneeded by PSG. The likelihood of both players arriving in the summer seems incredibly slim, even if both Reina and Strakosha leave.
