Lazio's Target For Left Back Reinforcement: Layvin Kurzawa And Patrick Van Aanholt

Lazio is reportedly on the hunt for a left-back in January, with two of their targets being PSG's Layvin Kurzawa and Galatasaray's Patrick van Aanholt, who will involve Vedat Muriqi in a swap.

Maurizio Sarri's formation change at Lazio to 4-3-3 has completely transformed a squad that has worked with three defenders for years under coach Simone Inzaghi for the last five years.  Some of them took longer to adapt than others, including Manuel Lazzari.

According to reports reported by La Gazetta dello Sport, Sarri has asked for additional players in the left-back sector in the January market.  His main target is Layvin Kurzawa, who has asked to leave Paris Saint-Germain and is available on loan with an option to buy at the end of the season.  Although the size of his salary will be a problem for Biancoceleste, it will require PSG to pay half of the 4 million euros per season.

Another candidate is the 31-year-old Dutchman Patrick van Aanholt who currently plays for Galatasaray.  The Aquile could use Muriqi as part of the swap, as the striker also failed to convince Sarri in the absence of Ciro Immobile, the coach preferring to use Felipe Anderson or Pedro as false nines rather than relying on the Kosovo international.

Muriqi was bought from Fenerbahce in 2020 for a transfer fee of 20 million Euros and wants to return to playing in Turkey where he also made impressive appearances for Giresunspor, Genclerbirligi, and Rizespor.
