Lazio Keep Rejecting Galatasaray Bids for Midfielder

There’s still some time left in the summer window in Turkey, and Galatasaray continue to chase after Matias Vecino despite getting rebuffed by Lazio on deadline day. The Cimbom lodged a €3.5M offer for the Uruguayan veteran, who’s keen on accepting, local publications inform (via Calciomercato).

On the other hand, the Biancocelesti have no intention of letting him go, Alfredo Pedullà reports. Turkish clubs have ten more days to operate on the transfer market. It remains to be seen whether there will be further attempts.

Vecino is the latest Serie A midfielder tracked by Galatasaray, but they’ll have to sway Lazio to snap him up. They missed out on former Bologna star Nicolas Dominguez. Furthermore, their fans are protesting because they are expecting a more alluring addition.

The former Inter and Fiorentina player dropped down in the depth chart this summer following the acquisitions of Daichi Kamada, Matteo Guendouzi, and Nicolò Rovella. The Biancocelesti parted ways with just Marcos Antonio, who joined PAOK on loan, while they retained Toma Basic. He has two more years on his contract.

Our Take on Vecino, Lazio, and Galatasaray

It’d be tough to lose somebody without being able to replace him. He’s a Maurizio Sarri lieutenant, so his departure is unlikely. Still, if the fee got to interesting levels, and selling a 32-year-old can’t fetch a lot of money, they should think about it, because they are in a good spot numerically and technically.
