Lazio Debating Winter Move for Sampdoria Veteran

Lazio are seriously debating picking up Sampdoria veteran Francesco Caputo in the upcoming January transfer window.

The recent hamstring injury suffered by talismanic striker Ciro Immobile revealed the Biancocelesti’s lack of depth up front, with an adapted Felipe Anderson or an untested Matteo Cancellieri filling in for the 32-year-old star.

Lazio have a clear gap in their squad following the departure of Vedat Muriqi in the summer and it could be filled in January.

As reported by La Lazio Siamo Noi, Sampdoria are looking to cut Caputo in January and would be willing to sell the 35-year-old for a fairly low price. The veteran earns over €1m net per season and his departure would save the Ligurian club vital money.

Lazio will have to manage the issues of the liquidity index in January and Caputo could be the perfect low-cost option to reinforce their frontline, leading them to consider the move.

Last season, the 35-year-old scored 11 goals in 38 Serie A appearances.
