Inter could look to bring in Lazio wing-back Manuel Lazzari to replace Achraf Hakimi at the Giuseppe Meazza should the Morrocan depart in the summer, according to reports.

This from today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Il Messaggero, who claim that the former Lazio coach is seeking a reunion with the 27-year-old Italian.

Hakimi is thought to be at the top of the list of players the Nerazzurri could sell in the summer, with Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain heavily pursuing him, and the club will look to replace him with a player of a similar profile.

Lazzari has emerged as a target, with the Italian having been ever-present in Inzaghi’s squad during the two seasons the pair spent together at Lazio.

Lazari would slot into Inzaghi’s system quickly, as there would be no need to adjust to the manager’s ideas and methods, and the pair are said to have a good relationship.

However, it is thought that Lazio president Claudio Lotito would not consider parting with the Italian for less than €25 million.

Should Lazzari depart from the Bianconeri, the club would likely use to fund deals for the likes of Napoli’s Elseid Hysaj, Benfica’s Nuno Tavares, or Werner Bremen’s Ludwig Augustinsson, as they seek to rebuild under new manager Maurizio Sarri.
