Back in Rome after unsuccessful negotiations in Brazil for Felipe Anderson, Igli Tare is now in the hunt for a wing-back according to Corriere dello Sport.

Top of the pile is Genoa's Luca Antonelli. Antonelli, who can play at left-back, left-midfield and in the centre of the pitch is expected to crop up in negotiations between Lazio and Genoa President Enrico Presiozi who has expressed an interest in signing Francelino Matuzalem and Giuseppe Sculli on a permanent basis.

Another target is 19 year-old Albanian left-back Elseid Hysaj. Hysaj, who has 3 caps for Albani already and is their third youngest player to ever feature in the national team was a regular at Empoli last season. Empoli only missed out on promotion to Serie A in a play-off against Livorno and Igli Tare is hoping to take advantage of their misfortune to snap up Hysaj at a decent price. A co-ownership deal is viable, with 50% available for 2 million euro.

Another candidate is Brazilian right-back, Vacaria who plays for Juventude. The right-back, who is equally adept at right-midfield has been proposed to Lazio by his agent and Igli Tare is reportedly very interested. Vacaria has only recently turned 19 and has an Italian passport.
