Four Names Emerge in Lazio Search to Deputize Immobile

As the Serie A season nears its conclusion, clubs are already strategizing for the upcoming transfer window. Lazio, in particular, are looking for a reliable backup for their star striker Ciro Immobile, who has been plagued by recurring injuries. With a potential UEFA Champions League campaign on the horizon, coach Maurizio Sarri is adamant about bolstering his attacking options.

As per Corriere dello Sport, four candidates have emerged as potential deputies to the veteran in the books of director Igli Tare. Inter target Mateo Retegui, who earned the limelight following his impressive Italy debut, is high on the Biancocelesti wishlist. Another option linked with Lazio frequently in the near past is Sassuolo striker Andrea Pinamonti, whom the Emilian side redeemed from the Nerazzurri for €20M.

Looking beyond domestic prospects, Santiago Gimenez, a promising young striker who recently faced Lazio in the Europa League, reportedly caught the attention of their officials. Additionally, Benfica’s Rafa Silva is said to have impressed the Biancocelesti scouts.

All the aforementioned forwards would cost Lazio nothing less than €15-20M, making them all affordable options ahead of the upcoming season. With Sarri aiming to solidify his squad depth, it might not be too long before a new center-forward arrives at the Stadio Olimpico.
