Lazio's Targeted Striker Chooses To Join FK Krasnodar

Lazio must be prepared to accept bad news after their target striker, Erik Botheim from Bodo/Glimt is reportedly one step away from joining Russian club FK Krasnodar after initial terms have been agreed between the two parties.

Erik Botheim reportedly underwent a medical on Tuesday (21/12) local time ahead of his move to FK Krasnodar.  The Aquile have been linked with the transfer of the 21-year-old Bodo/Glimt for some time but appear to have given up their target, as the Norwegian striker is just one step away from joining the Russian club.

According to reports by Fabrizio Romano, it was revealed that the striker underwent a medical in Germany on Tuesday before signing the contract which will tie him to Krasnodar while initial terms have been agreed between the two parties.

The Biancoceleste must now forget about Botheim and pursue other targets, as Maurizio Sarri is actively looking for a backup striker for Ciro Immobile.  Currently, Vedat Muriqi fills the position but he is considered to have failed to convince the 62-year-old coach and it appears he is destined to leave the club in the January transfer window.

Meanwhile, the appearance of the 21-year-old striker, Botheim, attracted the attention of all corners of Europe with his impressive performance against Jose Mourinho's team, Roma.  He scored three goals and contributed three assists in two games against the Gialorossi.
