Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi has asked the Nerazzurri to sign Manuel Lazzari as a replacement for Achraf Hakimi with the Moroccan expected to depart in the coming day.

This according to Italian news outlet L’Interista, who report that the new Inter manager considers Lazzari his first choice for the role and has told the club to make the 27-year-old a priority target.

With Hakimi expected to move to Paris Saint-Germain or Chelsea this week, the Nerazzurri will need to find a direct replacement for the Moroccan, and Lazzari’s profile as a right-sided player could be the right one.

Moreover, Inzaghi has already worked with the 27-year-old Italian for two seasons at Lazio, with Lazzari having joined the Biancocelesti from SPAL in 2019, and the player will not have to adjust to the manager’s tactics and methods.

The player is reported to have given his OK on a move, and would be happy to reunited with his former Lazio manager.

It remains seen whether Inter will be able to negotiate with Lazio for the sale of the player.
