Two Lazio Midfield Acquisitions Hang in the Balance

Lazio thought to have put their hands on Djibril Sow, but the outcome isn’t so certain. They have concurred with Eintracht Frankfurt on the fee, but the player is evaluating other offers too. In particular one coming from Sevilla, Sport1 reports (via Tuttomercatoweb).

The Nervionenses’ new director Victor Orta traveled to Salzburg to meet the midfielder. The player opened to the transfer to Andalusia, provided they strike a deal with his current club.

Lazio haven’t missed out on Sow yet, but they aren’t the lone competitors. They might need to tweak their offer on personal terms to onboard him.

The Biancocelesti have also put the acquisition of Arsen Zakharyan on hold. According to Il Messaggero, Maurizio Sarri doesn’t consider him ready. They’d loan him out for a year if they signed him. The prodigy doesn’t like such a solution and is looking around. Genoa and other European clubs could soon barge into the race.

Our Take on Lazio, Sow, and Zakharyan

A swift acquisition by the Biancocelesti without drama or delays looked a bit suspicious, and in fact, it won’t be the case. He’d be a solid get at those numbers, but they will likely move on quickly if they sense to be embroiled in a bidding war.
