Lazio ready to battle Milan for Atalanta attacker

22 June at 19:40

According to reports from Skysports, the sports director of Lazio Igli Tare and Giuseppe Riso, Papu Gomez’s agent, met in Milan to talk about the Argentine. Gomez remains an Atalanta player for now, but with interest coming from Milan via the Rossoneri and now from Rome via Lazio, perhaps the Argentine will be leaving Bergamo this summer. After helping Atalanta to a surprising fourth place finish and qualification into the Europa League, Gomez will have a decision to make.


The 29 year old will be looking to secure one of the last important contracts of his career, but needs to be cautious not to sign for a club that is not keen to give him a starting role. The captaincy and the responsibility that came with it this past season helped to boost the Argentine attacker, who in turn helped his teammates. Wherever he finds a new home, it will be a new challenge for Papu Gomez at a crucial time in his career. With Lazio looking at the possibility of losing Keita Balde this summer, perhaps Gomez can be his immediate replacement.
