Lazio Concerned Over Struggles Shifting Redundant Players

With less than a month left in the summer transfer window, Lazio are starting to grow concerned over the number of redundant players that still need to be sold.

The Biancocelesti have been working hard this summer to overhaul the squad and have already made seven signings, picking up players like Alessio Romagnoli and Matteo Cancellieri. Lazio have also been looking to re-home their dead weight, selling players like Vedat Muriqi and Denis Vavro.

As reported by Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24), president Claudio Lotito is starting to become worried about the number of redundant players still left at the club. Those currently on the transfer list include Francesco Acerbi, Jean-Daniel Akpa Akpro, Gonzalo Escalante, Sofian Kiyine and Elseid Hysaj.

The Acerbi situation is the most pressing and difficult to resolve, with the former Sassuolo man failing to draw adequate offers still. Lazio are hoping to avoid a capital loss, but they may be forced to cut their losses should things remain quiet.

Other players, like Escalante and Kiyine, will likely be re-homed more easily, although Hysaj and Akpa Akpro could still prove tough.
