Lazio sporting director Angelo Mariano Fabiani suggested that the squad ‘are complete’ whilst discussing the January transfer window, admitting it’s ‘complicated’ to make any late moves.
The Biancocelesti looked to the English market in recent days, submitting offers for Plymouth Argyle winger Morgan Whittaker, Sunderland forward Jack Clarke and Norwich winger Jonathan Rowe, all of which were declined by their respective Championship clubs.
With just over 24 hours to go in the January transfer window, Lazio are now looking increasingly unlikely to bring in any reinforcements for the second half of the season, something that will not come as good news for coach Maurizio Sarri.
Speaking to Corriere dello Sport (via La Lazio Siamo Noi), Fabiani discussed Lazio’s position in the January transfer window and if any deals will be made before it closes on 1st February at 20.00 local time.
I’ve been saying this for months, not just now. The transfer market never sleeps, we’re evaluating everything, but the squad built in the summer is complete.
We won’t hold back on the right and functional opportunity if it appears, but I think it’s complicated in the last 48 hours. We can only be interested in a young man of quality and talent to bring in without any sales.
Lazio’s only work in the January transfer window so far is the loan of Toma Basic to Salernitana and the sale of Emanuele Cicerelli to Catania.
