After the hard won victory against Verona for the Italian Cup the bad news continue for Lazio. Having saved his team in the 91st minute now Hernanes has a problem: “I have a problem with the meniscus” – he said and continued – I have a discomfort in the knee. Tomorrow I should not train, but could make it back till Sunday. And probably that was not enough and now starting fullbacks Konko and Radu have problems. The French is out with contracture and the Romanian is out with tendinopathy and could skip Atalanta. Adding to these injuries the long-absent Mauri, the recovering Brocchi and the newly injured Lorik Cana, the situation with Lazio is not good. Coach Reja realizes that and called for reinforcements: “ I have a team broken to pieces. I hope we can recover someone fast. We must turn to the market” – said the coach.
Help might come from Genoa once again. The good relation between Lazio president Lotito and Genoa’s Preziosi might see winger Giuseppe Sculli return to his former side with one of Kucka or Constant. With that transfer happening the newly signed striker Alfaro might stay at Lazio. The other target Cesena’s Parolo probably costs too much with his price tag from 8 million. Another probable target is Claudio Yacob. Argentinian player with Spanish passport with a probable price around 3 million. Suley Muntari is also available as Inter seek a way to part ways with the player. His involvement in the African Nations’ Cup might become and obstacle.
At the defense department Lazio are turning to Sebastian Proedl. He confessed: “It’s true there was contact with Lazio. I might end up there in the summer”. The 24 year old Austrian is going to be a free agent in the summer.
