In Addition To Barak, Lazio Are Also Attempting To Lure Mandragora, A Former Player Under Tudor, Away From Fiorentina

Lazio, fighting for a spot in European competitions, is already setting the stage for the next season. Under Igor Tudor's leadership, significant changes are in the works, including an overhaul of the starting lineup and playing system (the latter is already evident in the latter part of the 2023/2024 season).

The necessity to reinforce the team with capable players has been emphasized by the Croatian coach in recent press conferences. Recent rumors gathered by affirm Lazio's interest in Rolando Mandragora, a player familiar to Tudor from their time at Udinese. Mandragora's adaptability is a standout feature, crucial for the new tactical approach of the Biancoceleste.

Originally from Ponticelli and born in 1997, primarily deployed as a left-footed central midfielder, Mandragora has demonstrated his effectiveness in various roles, including central defense and other midfield positions, expanding Tudor's tactical options. As for Fiorentina, they value Mandragora at around 8 million euros, a price they are unwilling to negotiate due to their strong rapport with the player. Lazio's interest has pleased Mandragora, and discussions have commenced.

However, Fiorentina has not listed Mandragora as transferable and will only entertain offers if they secure a suitable replacement and if Lazio's proposal meets their criteria. Currently, Fiorentina is confident that Mandragora will remain with them for another season, leading up to the expiration of his contract in June 2026.
