Lazio failed to sell unneeded full back Mohamed Fares this summer, so they’re hoping to find a buyer in the winter instead.
The 26-year-old Algerian joined Genoa on loan last summer, but only spent six months in Liguria after a fairly unconvincing spell. Fares joined Torino on a six-month loan deal in January and suffered a cruciate ligament rupture before making a single appearance, leaving him sidelined in Turin.
As highlighted by TMW, Lazio have included Fares in their Serie A squad registration list, but he clearly won’t play a role in Maurizio Sarri’s project in Rome. The club are keen to sell him in January in order to shift his €1.3 million net per season salary.
Selling Fares and defender Dimitrije Kamenovic in January could finally give the Biancocelesti enough space to pick up a new left back, something Sarri has wanted for a while.
Fares joined Lazio in October 2020 from SPAL in a deal worth around €8 million. He made 29 appearances across all competitions for the club before heading to Liguria last summer.
