Luis Alberto Dishes on His Future, Lazio Lose Immobile

Cadiz have tried to sign Luis Alberto in January but, while the midfielder remains keen on moving to La Liga, it probably won’t happen in the current window. He spoke candidly on the matter to DAZN (via Corriere dello Sport).

“I wouldn’t have spent seven years here if I had problems with the management. I have an excellent relationship with the president and the sporting director. The coach and I talked after the break and cleared the air. We aren’t best friends, but we are on normal terms. Then we’ll see, but I wish to finish my career in Spain.”

“I’ve gotten in touch with Cadiz, which is my favorite team, and their president is a friend of mine. I’ve two years on my contract, and they told me that my transfer was unlikely at this stage. I’ll give my whole to Lazio for as long as I’m in Rome.”

Luis Alberto has started and shown well in the last two matches. He’ll have to continue contributing since they won’t have Ciro Immobile for a few games. The striker has been diagnosed with a thigh strain following the Sassuolo bout, and he’ll miss two-to-three weeks, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs.

The Biancocelesti were already looking for a deputy at the position, and they will accelerate on that front. Per Gianluca Di Marzio, their two preferred options are Federico Bonazzoli and especially Antonio Sanabria. Torino would let him go if they signed Eldor Shomurodov from Roma. Instead, they might get the Salernitana forward through a swap with Mohamed Fares, Alfredo Pedullà informs.
