The first Lazio offers for Marcos Leonardo were rebuffed by Santos, and the Biancocelesti are pivoting toward different options like New York City’s Taty Castellanos and Basel’s Zeki Amdouni. The Brazilian side is no longer in a rush to sell after cashing in on Angelo, who will join Chelsea for €18M, Tuttomercatoweb reports.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio, the capital club will mull whether to raise its bid or target other players. The Argentine is also being pursued by Benfica. He recorded 14 goals in 37 appearances while on loan to Girona in the past campaign. The two teams are also tussling over another footballer, AZ Alkmaar’s Milos Kerkez. The player has okayed the move but has a €15M valuation.
On top of Castellanos, Lazio are pursuing Amdouni. There have already been some contacts with Basel, Sportitalia reports. He has different traits, as he’s more physical and less mobile. He hit the net 22 times and provided 5 assists in 2022/2023.
The Biancocelesti have been seeking a proper Ciro Immobile deputy for multiple windows. Felipe Anderson filled in as a false-nine last season. That could continue to be the case if they acquired a top-notch winger. Domenico Berardi is top of the list, but the negotiation with Sassuolo has yet to start. Matteo Politano and Riccardo Orsolini are the fallbacks, the outlet adds.
