Why Lazio Could Invest Heavily in the Summer Market

Should Lazio secure qualification to the Champions League, strong investments could be made in the summer transfer window.

The Biancocelesti are in the thick of the fight for a top four finish, sitting second in the Serie A table with 10 games left to play. Maurizio Sarri’s side sit five points ahead of fifth place Roma and could finally make their return to the Champions League should they maintain momentum.

Lazio worked hard last summer to start overhauling the squad to suit Sarri, bringing in eight players like Alessio Romagnoli, Nicolo Casale and Matteo Cancellieri, and more reinforcements will arrive at the end of this season.

As detailed by Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24), securing qualification to the Champions League would guarantee Lazio at least €40 million, which could rise by a further €10-15 million depending on results and possible qualification to the knock-out stages.

The budget would be further increased by the sale of star midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, who the club hope to receive around €40 million for.

Other sales, like that of possibly Manuel Lazzari or Mohamed Fares, could also increase the resources available to the Roman outfit, giving them ample opportunity to invest heavily in the summer.
