Lazio boss Maurizio Sarri wants to bring some of the players who have the experience of playing under the Tuscan manager.
According to a report from La Gazzetta dello Sport, Sarri is interested in a reunion with Emerson Palmieri, Allan, Matías Vecino, and Dries Mertens this summer.
Emerson, who left Chelsea on a season-long loan deal last summer, is currently playing his professional football for Lyon. The report understands that Lazio are willing to sign the left-back on loan with an option to buy in the summer.
The Biancocelesti will reportedly be looking to strike a deal for Allan, whose contract at Everton expires in June 2023. Lazio, as per the report, would like to sign the midfielder at a reasonable price. Sarri and Allan have understandably shared a deep affection for each other since their days in Naples.
Furthermore, the Lazio boss will be pushing Claudio Lotito to lure Mertens away from Napoli. The all-time top goalscorer for the Partenopei, Mertens is seen as a perfect deputy for Ciro Immobile at the Rome-based club. Like that of Mertens, Vecino’s contract at Inter will come to an end in June 2022.
