Report: Lazio negotiate with key players

Lazio are reportedly working on new deals for leading goalscorer Ciro Immobile and goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha.

The Biancoceleste are the big surprise of 2019-20, as they sit second in Serie A, one point behind League leaders Juventus after 26 rounds.

Serie A is currently suspended due to the Coronavirus emergency, giving President Claudio Lotito and sporting director Igli Tare the possibility to work behind the scenes to tie their key members to new deals at the Olimpico.

The Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Nicoló Schira has reported that the Aquile are offering the Albanian goalkeeper Strakosha a new deal until June 2025, worth €2m a year.

The 25-year-old has kept nine clean sheets in the 26 Serie A matches so far, with only 23 goals conceded.

At the other end of the pitch, the Italy international Immobile has attracted interest from the top clubs after yet another season with great return in front of goal.

The 30-year-old is currently on a deal expiring in June 2023, but Schira writes that the club wants to extend with another season until June 2024 and are ready to offer the leading goalscorer €4m annually.
