Sarri and Lotito Butt Heads over the Transfer Market

Maurizio Sarri and Claudio Lotito had a heated confrontation over the phone concerning Lazio’s lack of acquisitions so far. The coach is eager to bring in new pieces to give them time to learn his system. The Biancocelesti have sealed the deal only for Taty Castellanos so far. He has yet to start practicing due to visa issues, Tuttomercatoweb relays.

The Biancocelesti need to replace Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and have been seeking a deep-lying midfielder too. The gaffer doesn’t want the front office to wait for the exits of out-of-favor players before completing the purchases.

Sarri specifically asked Lotito for Domenico Berardi and Samuele Ricci. The president is negotiating for the former, but he’s unlikely to resume tracking the Sassuolo star considering his price tag and age.

Per Il Messaggero, the patron wants to bring a newcomer along with him when he reaches their preseason camp Sunday. He’ll raise the offer for the Torino talent, but the counterparty is driving a hard bargain. The talks with Callum Hudson-Odoi are going well. He could be the choice on the flanks.

Our Take on Lotito and Sarri

These reports generally blow things a bit out of proportion, but some disappointment and frustration by the manager is well-justified. Partying ways with Milinkovic-Savic was no ordinary business and should have led to a few quick signings.
