Lazio Join Intense Fray to Snap Up Monza Star Colpani

Lazio are the latest Serie A team tipped to go after Andrea Colpani, who has been the most prolific midfielder in the league so far. The Biancocelesti have had some problems on that end following the departure of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Il Messaggero informs.

The capital club has entered the busy race. All the other top clubs are after him. It’ll be easy for Monza to stoke a bidding war. It’ll take at least €20/25M to acquire him, a sizeable investment for their finances, especially with no profitable sales on the horizon.

Lazio could include Toma Basic as a partial makeweight in the Colpani deal. However, the disbursement wouldn’t get much lower. President Claudio Lotito and the Brianzoli’s CEO Adriano Galliani are on excellent terms. They are senators for the same political party.

The Biancocelesti are keen on the Azzurri rookie for the summer. Instead, their January activity will hinge on whether Ciro Immobile, Pedro, or Felipe Anderson will depart. The current indications suggest they’ll all stay, delaying the searches for their replacements.

Our Take on Lazio and Colpani

While he and Monza will have the pick of the litter, he’ll have to be careful in choosing his next stop because, as a no.10, his tactical fit is peculiar. The box-to-box role would be too constraining, and a midfield that already features Luis Alberto wouldn’t hold up defensively. But they could perhaps use him as a right winger who cuts inside at will.
