Former Lazio defender Giuseppe Wilson has spoken about the situation of Inter target Manuel Lazzari at the Biancocelesti, suggesting that the player could be allowed to depart.
Speaking to Italian news outlet Tuttomercatoweb.com earlier today, the Italian talked about how Lazzari could be sold as part of the project to support new Lazio head coach Maurizio Sarri.
Lazzari is not thought to be a player who the new Lazio boss considers suitable for either the full-back or attacking winger roles in the tactical system he prefers, and could ask for the player’s sale to fund targets more suited to his style.
Inter coach Simone Inzaghi, meanwhile, plays a formation well-suited to the 27-year-old’s game, having worked together for the past two seasons at Lazio.
Wilson believes that the Biancocelesti would be justified in selling the wing-back for tactical reasons, and his words give hope to those who hope that Lazzari will be brought in as a replacement for Achraf Hakimi at the Giuseppe Meazza with the Moroccan looking set to depart for PSG.
“We have a coach [Sarri] who knows what he wants. If he makes [Lazzari] leave he will have good reasons, and a worthy replacement will arrive,” Wilson claimed.
“[Lazzari] has done very well, but there are technical choices that must be made, and the players who the coach has indicated must be made available to him. We need a couple of targeted purchases. With some important transfers you can get the players you need,” he added.
