Lazio Offered Opportunity to Acquire Verona Striker

Lazio will revisit their need for a proper backup for Ciro Immobile in January, and his agent has routinely offered Kevin Lasagna to them. The striker could be on his way in the next window as Verona could tweak their squad. He’s been linked to several different clubs already, Quotidiano Nazionale informs.

The Biancocelesti chased after Francesco Caputo in the past. His candidacy could resurface during the winter. Sampdoria will likely undergo significant changes to comply with the requests of coach Dejan Stankovic. Coach Maurizio Sarri was previously rumored to prefer a young option that could eventually succeed their legend.

Lasagna has two more years on his contract with Verona, but they have a tight relationship with Lazio. He wouldn’t be overly expensive, as a €2M fee could be enough to lure him away. Moreover, if the capital side found a taker for Luis Alberto, the deal could easily expand to Ivan Ilic.

Spezia and Sampdoria, which are searching for new attackers, are also after the 30-year-old. He had a strong start this season but quickly faded. He has scored and assisted once in 13 Serie A matches.

Our Take on Lazio and Lasagna

The Biancocelesti do need somebody up front, either a winger, so they can deploy Felipe Anderson centrally when Immobile isn’t there and are less hurt on the flanks, or a pure striker. The Gialloblù forward possesses ideal traits for a backup, especially his blistering speed. However, considering that they unceremoniously bowed out of Europa League, they might ultimately stand pat, focus on Serie A, whose schedule will ease up, and possibly give more playing time to Luka Romero and Matteo Cancellieri to fill the void.
