Three Clubs Keen on Redundant Lazio Wing Back

Lazio are working hard to find a buyer for Mohamed Fares in the January transfer window and three Serie A clubs have emerged to register their interest.

The 26-year-old Algerian forward is an unneeded player in Maurizio Sarri’s set up and was sent to Genoa on loan last summer. He spent six months with the Ligurian outfit before joining Torino on loan, where he suffered a cruciate ligament rupture. Fares has now worked back to fitness and is ready to take to the pitch again.

As reported by Il Tempo (via LazioNews24), Lazio are desperate to re-home Fares in next month’s transfer window in order to free up some vital space in their squad. The Algerian earns around €1.2 million net per season and his departure would allow the team to sign left back Luca Pellegrini.

Bologna have long been interested in the 26-year-old and Atalanta are also keen. In recent days, Salernitana have also requested information, exploring the idea of a winter move for the former SPAL man.
