Lazio Considering Montipo & Handanovic After Luis Maximiano Sale

Lazio are set to miss out on Emil Audero, so have started eying possible moves for Lorenzo Montipo and Samir Handanovic.

The Biancocelesti are preparing to sell backup goalkeeper Luis Maximiano to Almeria, ready to cut their losses on the 24-year-old after his disastrous debut season in the Italian capital. He will move on a loan deal with a €9.5m obligation to buy clause attached.

Lazio have long been considering a move for Audero following Sampdoria’s relegation, but their slowness has allowed Inter to pull ahead of the race, pushing the Roman club to turn to other targets.

Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24) details how Lazio have now started to think about picking up either Hellas Verona’s Montipo or free agent Handanovic, both of whom would be low-cost options.

The Slovenian veteran has been proposed to the Biancocelesti by his entourage following his departure from Inter last month, whilst Montipo is an old favourite that could be the perfect backup for Ivan Provedel.
