Maurizio Sarri is pushing for Lazio to sign soon-to-be free agent Matias Vecino but he’s facing resistance from the club’s management.
The Italian coach was incredibly keen to bring in the 30-year-old Uruguayan midfielder in the January transfer window but a deal never materialised as the Biancocelesti wrestled with liquidity index issues. His contract expires with Inter at the end of this season and a renewal won’t be signed.
As reported by Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24), Vecino is a real favourite of Sarri, who has repeatedly brought up the player to Lazio’s management this season. He is keen to add the Inter man to his squad, but this looks unlikely.
Lazio president Claudio Lotito and sporting director Igli Tare are unconvinced about the idea and don’t want to pick up an aging midfielder. So far there have been no concrete contacts between the parties and a deal looks fairly unlikely at this stage.
