Mertens, Caputo, Muriqi the point on Sarri’s attack

The Lazio transfer market continues to move in small steps, given the lack of liquidity due to the sales. As for the attack, the prices of Caputo della Sampdoria are on the rise.

Caputo goes up, Mertens goes down

Abrupt braking as regards Mertens. (35 years). The Belgian, the object of Sarri’s desire to make a championship attack with Immobile, Pedro and Zaccagni, would prefer to stay at Napoli (his contract will expire at the end of the month) and wants to meet De Laurentiis to discuss his future even by cutting himself off a lot. engagement. Lazio remains at the window but studies plan B, Ciccio Caputo. The Apulian Sampdoria striker, close to 35, has the ideal identikit as a deputy building. Caputo knows Serie A, sees the goal (60 goals in 149 appearances), would accept the reserve role and is ready for the big leap after his experience in Sampdoria, and before that with Sassuolo, Empoli and Bari.

The offer for Caputo

Lazio has found an agreement with the Altamura striker for some time, and had tried to bring him to Formello already last January. The Lazio management, however, must find an agreement with Sampdoria. The first biancoceleste offer, 1.5 million euros, was rejected. To unblock the situation, Lazio will have to put 2.5 million euros on the plate. Not a high figure and on which to bet given Caputo’s desire to move and his contract expiring in 2024.

Numerous attack

In addition to the arrival of the deputy building, Lazio must thin out its large number of attackers. After the transfer of the class ’99 Adekanye (15 appearances and 1 goal in biancoceleste) to the Go Ahead Eagles in Eredivise, Lazio are trying to place Muriqi. The Kosovar born in 1994 who disappointed in the biancoceleste (49 appearances and 2 goals) but did well for Mallorca in the Liga in recent months, will take part in Auronzo’s retirement. In fact, the negotiation between Lazio and Mallorca has become complicated, with the Spaniards unable to satisfy Lotito’s economic demands (10-12 million euros, 18 + 2 bonuses were paid by the Capitoline in 2020). On the Pirata there is now Galatasaray with the attacker available on his return to Turkey. The situation linked to Cabral has to be defined.

The Cape Verdean born in 1998 arrived on loan in January at Lazio with whom he scored 1 goal in 4 games and at the end of the month he will return to Portugal at Sporting Lisbon. After ending up in Lazio’s oblivion never really wanted by Sarri, in the last league outings with the forfeit of Immobile, Cabral managed to get noticed and now Lazio is evaluating a renewal of the loan (there is to beat the competition of Besiktas and Marseille). Sporting would like to sell it outright for a sum not exceeding 6 million euros, but in the last few hours it seems to have opened the loan (with right / obligation to redeem). The management evaluates what to do with Cabral, who is a winger adapted by Sarri as a striker, who could eventually stay and complete the Lazio attack.
