Juve and Lazio 'ask for Cassani'

Palermo and Italy right-back Mattia Cassani's agent has confirmed “both Lazio and Juventus have made enquiries.”

The Rosanero player could be leaving Sicily over the summer for a more prestigious club.

“Both Lazio and Juventus have made enquiries,” agent Tiberio Cavalleri told

“The interest from the two clubs is certainly real, but at the moment negotiations are not at the stage that would see him leave Palermo for next season.”

It's reported Cassani is the effective replacement for Stephan Lichtsteiner.

Should Lazio sell the Switzerland international to Juventus, then they would bring in Cassani to fill the gap.

If Juve don't get Lichtsteiner, then their second choice is Cassani.
