Il Messaggero reports Maurizio Sarri wants a midfielder similar to Chelsea’s Ruben Loftus-Cheek to strengthen Lazio in the January transfer window.
Sarri will soon meet Lotito to discuss a contract extension in the capital.
According to multiple reports in Italy, their meeting will also be useful to discuss the club’s transfer strategies for January.
Sarri wants an aggressive centre midfielder similar to Chelsea’s Ruben Loftus-Cheek. Lazio opened talks to sign the 25-year-old in the summer and the Italian tactician is an admirer of the product of Chelsea academy.
The Englishman has only collected ten appearances across all competitions with the Blues this season, but even if Lazio fail to sign him in January, Sarri would still want a player with his characteristics.
Sarri is also on the lookout for a new central defender and a back-up for Ciro Immobile, given that Vedat Muriqi is pushing to leave Lazio.
The Kosovo striker could return to Fenerbache on loan, but the two clubs are still nowhere close to reaching an agreement.
