Lazio Join Race for Top-Notch Prospect with Tarnished Reputation

Following an underwhelming 2023/24 Serie A campaign, Lazio brace themselves for a busy summer, especially with several high-profile outgoings on the horizon. According to Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla, club president Claudio Lotito has set his sights on Manchester United outcast Mason Greenwood.

Despite being clear of rape charges last year, Greenwood’s career at Old Trafford is dead in the water. However, the versatile forward enjoyed a stellar season-long loan at Getafe, reminding Europe of his undeniable qualities. Among the sides to have taken note of his return to prominence is Lazio.

Felipe Anderson will continue his career at Palmeiras after refusing to extend his contract at Lazio. Daichi Kamada is another first-team star who could leave the Stadio Olimpico following a sub-par maiden campaign in Serie A. But that’s not the end of a looming exodus.

Captain Ciro Immobile is also close to leaving the capital. And with long-serving stalwart Luis Alberto on the verge of ending his eight-year association with Lazio, Lotito is in the market for a new top-class forward. As it seems, he has made his choice.

Greenwood, recently linked with a move to Napoli, could be available in a cut-price deal this summer. Since Lazio will operate on a tight budget, the 22-year-old emerges as an ideal cost-effective signing. However, the Biancocelesti must watch out for Bundesliga powerhouse Borussia Dortmund.

No strangers to purchasing top English talents and turning them into world-class players, the Champions League finalists are keeping close tabs on Greenwood. Should the Germans decide to go after the youngster, Lazio might not stand a chance unless they get to him first.
