Lazio facing dilemma in moves for Arsen Zakharyan and Callum Hudson-Odoi

Lazio are currently said to be facing a dilemma about whether they should move for Arsen Zakharyan or Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi.

Il Messaggero (via TMW) today state that Napoli’s Piotr Zielinski is currently Maurizio Sarri’s key choice for the attacking midfield spot but the move is complicated because of the Partenopei’s financial demands. The Pole is also yet to decide whether to sign a new deal with his club or not.

So for the time being, Lazio are looking at other targets. Sarri is a fan of Hudson-Odoi from their time together at Chelsea and he would rather have him at the club. But Claudio Lotito is inching close to a move for Zakharyan, who will cost a fee of €15 million and he prefers the 20-year-old Russian over the 22-year-old Englishman.

It remains to be seen who the club end up signing but there is concrete talk of a move for Zakharyan progressing, with an agreement said to be close.
