Lazio Are Once More Eyeing Salernitana's Dia As They Seek To Strengthen Their Squad For The Upcoming Season

Lazio are reportedly in pursuit of Boulaye Dia from Salernitana as they aim to bolster their attacking lineup for the upcoming season. The move comes in response to Ciro Immobile's underwhelming performance this season, prompting the club to seek an affordable option to strengthen their attack.

According to reports, Lazio are eyeing a budget-friendly deal with Salernitana to bring Dia to Rome. The club is gearing up for an active summer transfer window, especially after the managerial changes from Maurizio Sarri to Igor Tudor. One area of focus for Lazio's management is enhancing the attacking options, particularly the striker role.

Immobile's goal-scoring numbers have dwindled this season, likely due to injuries affecting the 34-year-old forward's form. His replacement, Taty Castellanos, hasn't delivered standout performances in Serie A either.

Il Messaggero's latest update suggests that Lazio views Dia as a suitable addition to bolster their attack, especially if they can secure him at a discounted price. Currently, Dia has a €20 million buyout clause, but there's speculation that Salernitana's president, Danilo Iervolino, might consider selling for €10 million once the clause expires.

With Salernitana facing likely relegation to Serie B, there's anticipation of significant player departures from the club, including Dia. Despite a recent decline in performance, Dia established himself as Salernitana's primary striker last season following his transfer, showcasing impressive physical and technical skills. Lazio's sporting director, Angelo Fabiano, appreciates Dia's versatility in various attacking positions, making him an attractive prospect for the Biancoceleste.
