Lazio Switch Their Targets On Hellas Verona's Striker After Botheim Chooses Go To FK Krasnodar

Lazio is reported to have shifted their transfer target to striker Hellas Verona in the January market, this was done after it was confirmed that their main target, Erik Botheim preferred to join the Russian club, FK Krasnodar.

As Radiosei reports, Lazio is looking for a new backup striker to replace Vedat Muriqi and they must now find an alternative to their first option in Kevin Lasagna who currently plays for Hellas Verona, as Bodo/Glimt's Erik Botheim is just one step away from joining FK. Krasnodar.

One of their options is 29-year-old Kevin Lasagna, who joined last January from Udinese on an 18-month loan contract with a conditional buyout clause in his contract.

The Italian striker has only made four appearances as a starter in Serie A this season and has a transfer value of 5 million euros which is quite affordable for Maurizio Sarri's team.

Apart from Lasagna, the Biancoceleste are also interested in another Verona player, Nicolo Casale, so the two clubs are reportedly ready to enter talks when the January transfer window officially opens. Lasagna has made 12 appearances in all competitions this season with a total of 427 minutes played and in that period he has not directly contributed to scoring goals.

Meanwhile, the current Aquile striker, Vedat Muriqi, is considered to be less convincing and is increasingly marginalized because he has not yet produced a goal, Turkish club Galatasaray is reportedly interested in getting his services.
