Recent Events and Turnarounds Lessen Lazio Needs

The recent results and performances by some players will likely affect the Lazio moves down the stretch in the January window. Luis Alberto has resumed being a regular and has been effective since returning to the starting lineup. The Spaniard, who was targeted by Cadiz in previous weeks and often voiced his desire to return to Spain, is untouchable now, Alfredo Pedullà reports.

Coach Maurizio Sarri, who often quarreled with the maestro, routinely praised him. The midfielder has tallied one goal and two assists in the last three matches. He had his best performance of the season in the Milan clash. While he previously pushed to leave, he was never really on the brink of departing because nobody came close to his €20M price tag.

On top of Luis Alberto, also Elseid Hysaj, who seemed to have fallen out of favor, has started to fare significantly better. After filling in for the suspended Manuel Lazzari in the previous game, the gaffer deployed him against the Rossoneri to have a more defensive posture, and it worked out.

The manager would still like to get a left-footed fullback. The door is still open for Luca Pellegrini despite the short time left in the window. But at least he rediscovered another solid option for the role. In addition, Ciro Immobile received good news on his injury, and he’ll be back soon. Factoring in the strong offensive showings without him, that deemphasizes the need for a new forward. Federico Bonazzoli remains the primary candidate.

Our Take on Lazio

The matter with Luis Alberto was that they either use him or he’s a nagging luxury. Immobile returning earlier than expected shouldn’t discourage them from finding a real deputy.
