Lazio Believe Besiktas’ Gedson Fernandes Is Perfect for Sarri

Lazio are looking to pick up a new midfielder in the summer and have identified Besiktas’ Gedson Fernandes as a strong candidate.

The Biancocelesti have a few key players in their midfield department, like Luis Alberto and Danilo Cataldi, but could still use another couple of reinforcements to give Maurizio Sarri enough options to fight on multiple fronts.

Decisions will be made on Toma Basic and Marcos Antonio, two players who have struggled to show their best with Lazio, at the end of this season.

As reported by Alfredo Pedulla, Lazio have been keeping a close eye on Besiktas midfielder Gedson Fernandes and believe he may be the perfect option for Sarri’s tactical system.

The 24-year-old is able to play as both a regista and box-to-box midfielder, and is known to be tactically intelligent.

Gedson Fernandes is contracted to Besiktas until June 2026 and has an estimated market value of around €10m. The Biancocelesti will continue to follow the Portuguese midfielder for the rest of the season as they debate a possible move in the summer.
