One of the players mentioned during Maurizio Sarri’s meeting with Lazio’s management yesterday was goalkeeper Sergio Rico.
The Biancocelesti know that they’ll need to sign one or two new shot stoppers in the summer following the departures of Pepe Reina and Thomas Strakosha, both of which look certain to leave once their contracts expire at the end of this season.
As reported by La Lazio Siamo Noi, Sarri and Lazio agreed to make a move for the 28-year-old Rico in the summer. The Spaniard would happily accept the move to Rome as he doesn’t want to remain sidelined with PSG any more and would much prefer the Biancocelesti to RCD Mallorca.
His contract expires with the French giants in 2024, which allows for a possible loan deal with either an option or obligation to buy clause attached.
Rico has been in the sights of sporting director Igli Tare for some time now and he’s also highly regarded by Sarri due to both his age and international experience.
