Lazio target 22 year old Chelsea midfielder to reinforce squad

07 July at 22:40

According to Corriere dello Sport, Lazio has put in their sights as a midfield reinforcement Mario Pasalic. The Chelsea owned midfielder played last season under Montella at Milan, and looks as if he could be staying in Italy but moving south to Rome. Pasalic has shown himself a solid Serie A player, but will have a difficult time breaking into Milan’s newly rebuilt midfield.


The 22 year old Croatian has a contract with Chelsea until June of 2018, and he could use this year to finalize a purchase instead of spending another year on loan. With first team regularity in mind, a move to Lazio might provide the spark Pasalic needs in his early career. Especially considering the approaching World Cup, the young star will want to compete for his place to represent his country next year in Russia. He is valued in the range of 8 million EUR, and might be a smart buy for Lazio should they lose Biglia to Milan.
