Brazilian youngster Bruno Uvini could be the subject of negotiations between Sao Paulo and Lazio this summer.
The 21-year-old’s agent has claimed that in the wake of the Aquile’s believed primary defensive target Breno being sentenced to jail this week for aggravated arson, that attention will turn to his client.
Lazio were reportedly tracking the outcome of former Bayern Munich stopper Breno’s trial in Germany, understood to be interested in tying up his services if he was not jailed.
However, his sentencing to almost four years in prison for deliberately burning down his house in Munich last September, sees the capital club considering other defensive options.
“It’s true, Uvini has been offered to the Biancocelesti but at that moment [Lazio sporting director] Igli Tare wanted to wait for the outcome of Breno’s trial,” Emanuele Ricci told Lalaziosiamonoi.
“Uvini likes the club and as far as we know their ds likes him, I wonder now if they will talk about a deal.
“He’s a player who can be used both in three and four-man defences. In Brazil he has mainly played as the linchpin of a defensive trio, but he has no difficulty playing with another centre-back.
“He’s not a player who comes out with the ball, not like Andre Dias. He is a practical player.”
