Inter have made contact with Lazio about the possibility of signing defender Francesco Acerbi from Lazio in the summer.
This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Leggo, via LazioNews24, who report that the 34-year-old looks likely to leave the Biancocelesti at the end of the season and the Nerazzurri are a likely destination.
Acerbi has had a tough season in the Italian capital, with fractured relations with the club’s supporters and a struggle to adapt to life under coach Maurizio Sarri potentially pushing him towards the exit door.
The defender could reunite with former Biancocelesti coach Simone Inzaghi at the Giuseppe Meazza, with this reportedly the likeliest destination for him at the moment.
Inzaghi and Acerbi enjoyed a positive working relationship whilst the coach was in charge at Lazio, and Inter have opened up talks about the possibility of bringing the defender in.
The defender is under contract with Lazio until the end of June 2025, but they could decide to let him go in order to free up space on their wage bill.
