Agent: ‘Lazio in pole for Tonelli’

Lazio have a “clear advantage” in the race for Empoli defender Lorenzo Tonelli, the player’s agent confirms.

The 26-year-old has been a key part of the side which has impressed over the past two Serie A seasons, defying their meagre budget to achieve safety last season and currently sitting in 11th.

“It’s true, the Biancocelesti have a clear advantage,” Marco Sommella revealed in an interview with Cittaceleste, before again touting his other client Ciro Immobile for a move to the Aquile.

“Torino can redeem Immobile for €11m, but the Biancocelesti are a big club and a move to Rome would make him happy.”
