Lazio join Llorente race?

Lazio are reportedly ready to rival Fiorentina for ex-Juventus striker Fernando Llorente.

Llorente seemed to be closing in on a free transfer to Fiorentina after his Tottenham Hotspur contract expired.

However, Il Messaggero writes Lazio have since got in touch with the 34-year-old’s representatives.

The Spaniard could replace Felipe Caicedo, who is entering the final year of his deal and may yet leave the Aquile, despite being offered fresh terms.

As per the newspaper, Llorente ticks boxes as a player who could finish crosses from new boys Manuel Lazzari and Jony Rodriguez, while acting as a battering ram in attack.
