Lazio Possess ‘Secret Weapon’ in Hunt for Ex-Torino Marksman

Ciro Immobile is the lone Lazio center-forward at the moment, but he could soon be joined by his national teammate Andrea Belotti, who is now a free agent after his Torino contract expired last month. The Biancocelesti are reportedly interested in luring the Euro 2020 winner to Stadio Olimpico, having already opened talks with the player’s entourage.

As per La Lazio Siamo Noi, the capital club sees the opportunity to sign the 28-year-old on a free transfer as a bargain, given his quality in the final third. He is wanted by a number of clubs across Europe, but no advances have been made from interested candidates, including Roma and Borussia Dortmund.

Reports from The Daily Mail indicate the Premier League as a potential destination for the striker, with Newcastle, Everton and West Ham being offered the chance to sign him. However, Lazio have moved forward instead, keeping in mind a ‘secret weapon’ they have in their ranks to convince Belotti to sign with them.

Club icon Immobile is a close friend of the ex-Torino marksman, with the duo having shared the same dressing room for one season in Turin during the 2013/14 season, not to mention their far-reaching allegiance within the national team.

Our Take on Lazio Aiming for Belotti

With the signing of Belotti, coach Maurizio Sarri would possess two of the most feared Italian strikers in his ranks. It will undoubtedly be the stuff of nightmares for opponents if both Immobile and Belotti can be combined in the starting eleven with a traditional 4-4-2 formation.
