Tottenham Among Clubs Interested in Signing Lazio Wingback

In the summer, Manuel Lazzari rejoiced for the opportunity to play in a four-man defense for the first time in his career. He believed it could give him a better chance to be a regular for Italy too. However, the Lazio wingback has struggled to adapt to it, and Maurizio Sarri has constantly preferred other options. Elseid Hysaj and Adam Marusic have been the starters when available. In recent games, the coach picked Stefan Radu and Patric over the 28-year-old in the position.

The Biancocelesti are seriously considering putting him up for sale in January. They think they could fetch a decent sum from a team that uses a different system. If it does not happen in the next session, the parties will split next summer, Tuttomercatoweb informs. Bologna, Torino, and Tottenham are tracking Lazzari.

It is uncertain what kind of price tag Lazio could ask for their player. They signed for €11M plus €4M add-ons from SPAL two years ago. If they adequately cashed in on him, they would look to add a pure left-back. River Plate’s Fabrizio Angileri, Lille’s Reinildo Mandava, and the more expensive Emerson are on their radar.

Intermediary Massimo Brambati, who is close with Antonio Conte, commented on Tottenham’s potential interest in the Lazio wingback: “There is some partial truth to it. Lazzari has a high motor, but the coach prefers more physical players now that he is back in the Premier League. He might not completely fit the profile of what he is looking for.”
