Inter Monitoring Talks Between Lazio and Veteran Defender

Francesco Acerbi has not made up with the Lazio fans following an incident in December, which could very well impact his future. The Biancocelesti have coped well during his lengthy absence. Maurizio Sarri has fielded a more dynamic defense while he was out with an injury, and their numbers have improved.

According to Radiosei, his agents and the brass of the club had a meeting before the Napoli clash. He is under contract until 2025, but his departure could be in the cards due to the challenging environmental situation. The parties will re-assess the matter at the end of the season. The veteran will try to win back the supporters through his performances. His former coach Simone Inzaghi would not mind reuniting with him at Inter, Corriere dello Sport informs

Lazio will go through a substantial overhaul of the defense next summer regardless of whether Acerbi will stay or leave. Luiz Felipe is on his way out and is in advanced talks with Real Betis. Patric is on an expiring contract too and has received a strong offer from Valencia, Tuttomercatoweb informs.

The Biancocelesti have already made their proposal to add Alessio Romagnoli on a Bosman move. They are also eyeing Verona’s Nicolò Casale and Real Sociedad’s Igor Zubeldia, La Repubblica reports. Acquiring the duo could cost around €25M. Acerbi was also timidly linked to Milan during the January window, as the Rossoneri were looking for a replacement for Simon Kjaer, but Lazio were unwilling to discuss his departure at the time.
