Lazio are hoping to pick up a new midfielder in the January transfer window and have reportedly started considering a move for Monza talent Andrea Colpani.
The Biancocelesti have struggled for extra sources of goals in their squad this season following Sergej Milinkovic-Savic’s departure in the summer. Whilst Luis Alberto has been in hot form, his midfield teammates have struggled to prove decisive, leaving the team in an awkward spot.
Much has also been written about the future of Daichi Kamada, who is clearly unhappy with his lack of playing time in the Italian capital. His contract with Lazio is only a one-year deal with an option for a further three years, and a departure in January cannot be ruled out still.
As reported by Il Messaggero (via La Lazio Siamo Noi), Lazio have now started seriously considering making a move for Colpani in January, hoping the strong relationship with Monza will help them get the edge over the interested Inter, Juventus and Milan.
The 24-year-old Italian midfielder is worth around €20-25m, a high fee, but the Biancocelesti could try to include Toma Basic in a deal to lower the overall costs.
