Report: Lazio want Caceres

Lazio are reportedly preparing a January swoop for Verona defender Martin Caceres.

According to Corriere della Sera, Lazio believe Caceres can tighten up their defence, which has conceded 22 goals in Serie A – eight more than the second-leakiest backline in the top five.

The 30-year-old has rebuilt his career with the Gialloblu after barely turning out for Southampton last season, but his contract has little over six months left to run.

Caceres also won five straight Scudetti with Juventus prior to his departure a year ago, although injuries prevented him from asserting himself as a regular pick.
