Don’t rule it out – Ex-Italian Serie A star Side Swoop for Everton and Chelsea players
Antonio Cassano has hinted he won’t rule out the possibility of Lazio making moves for Chelsea star Jorginho and Everton midfielder Allan in the summer transfer window.
Serie A giants Lazio could see midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic leave the club in the coming window for a hefty fee amid interest in his services.
Lazio manager Maurizio Sarri has already started planning to strengthen his squad in the coming window and many names have been linked with the Roma squad, while talk of which players to target has rage.
Former Italy international Cassano has insisted he cannot rule out Lazio making a move for two former Sarri indictments in Chelsea’s Jorginho and Everton’s Allan this summer, provided the club manage to sell Milinkovic-Savic.
“I wouldn’t rule out Lazio changing to Jorginho and Allan next season,” Cassano was quoted as saying by Italian media ArenaNapoli.it.
“If the club were to sell Milinkovic-Savic for €70m, €80m this summer, they could go looking for two midfielders, certainly given the first’s signing issues.”
Cassano stressed that Lazio should reinvest all the money they earn from player exits into the team and should bring in three or four players between midfield and defence.
“They also need a defender to command the defence, because both [Francesco] Acerbi and Luiz Felipe will leave investing the same amount [back into the squad].
“Lazio need to add three or four players before next season between defense and midfield.”
Jorginho’s current deal at Chelsea expires in the summer of 2023, while Everton could be ready to sell Allan in the coming window.
