Lazio Track Juventus and Napoli Loanees to Address Need

Lazio will attempt to finally sign a reliable deputy for Ciro Immobile and are keen on two reputable backup strikers, Arkadiusz Milik and Giovanni Simeone. The Pole, in particular, could transfer again for advantageous terms.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Juventus have until June 10th to decide whether to activate their €7M option to buy him out. Their management has not made the call, as they have a few balls in the air offensively. The Biancocelesti could remain interested even if he joined the Old Lady permanently. The two teams might orchestrate a multi-player deal that would satisfy both. However, it would be way easier if the marksman moved back to Olympique Marseille, which wouldn’t keep him.

Maurizio Sarri already coached Milik at Napoli, and such aspect, combined with a possible cheap formula, makes him a more attainable target than Simeone. The Biancocelesti have no reservations about the fit, as he’s an impeccable professional. Moreover, Ciro Immobile’s agent Marco Sommella has often collaborated with his Polish agency. The only problem would be his wages since he earns €3.5M per year.

According to Il Messaggero (via Calciomercato), the capital side would examine El Cholito if the Partenopei didn’t redeem him from Hellas Verona. They can do it by disbursing €12M after paying €3.5M for the loan spell.

Our Take on Lazio, Milik, and Simeone

They would fit the bill, but they’d better target a starlet to groom for a couple of years. However, both staying put at their current sides is a more likely scenario.
