Mohamed Fares may be forced to stay with Lazio until the summer as a move to Antalyaspor looks increasingly unlikely.
The Algerian full back has been completely excluded from Maurizio Sarri’s project in the Italian capital and has not made a single appearance this season following a cruciate ligament rupture suffered 13 months ago.
Antalyaspor emerged to register their interest in Fares last month and were expected to launch an offer, but things haven’t gone to plan.
As reported by Il Messaggero (via LazioNews24), no offer has arrived from Antalyaspor yet for Fares, leaving the Algerian stuck with Lazio.
The Turkish transfer market was initially set to close today but will be extended by FIFA for 10 days following the devastating earthquakes that recently hit the country, giving Lazio a glimmer of hope that an offer may still arrive.
Fares is contracted to Lazio until 2025 and has an estimated market value of around €3-4 million.
