Report: Lazio set asking price of €5m for centre-back with Milan considering a move

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are one of the teams that are interested in signing centre-back Francesco Acerbi from Lazio, according to a report.

With Simon Kjaer out for the season due to a knee ligament injury that he needed surgery on, the Rossoneri are in the market for a new defender and they could choose to go down the route of signing another experienced player that knows the league well and can therefore help the cause immediately.

According to La Lazio Siamo Noi, Lazio are plotting an overhaul in the upcoming windows as Maurizio Sarri looks to put his stamp on the squad, and Acerbi is one of the names at risk despite the fact his contract does not expire until 2025.

Lazio no longer consider him unsellable and the player himself is open to the possibility of leaving Rome. Milan, Inter and Juventus have registered interest in Acerbi and although the Rossoneri have a clear stance on signing young players they are willing to make some exceptions.

Maldini is still grappling with the Romagnoli renewal issue and if he were to leave, then a left-sided centre-back like Acerbi could be back in fashion. Matteo Gabbia could be on the way out too, as per the report, and Kjaer’s recovery cannot be rushed.

Lotito values ​​Acerbi at around €5m, given that he is 33 years old, but he continues to be a reliable performer without major injuries having made 21 appearances across all competitions so far this season.

    No, just no. Why pay for something way worse than what you already have? There is at least one garbage bin in or around training grounds that can be used and end up being way more effective that Acerbi could ever hope to be.

      I think you deserve a slap, maybe even a high kick. Feel free to give me a call and I’ll help you out with that.

      Weeeell, we have a huge gap behind at the very front of Maignan’s nose. And this gap in combo with Theo’s clumsiness becomes bigger and bigger. And now we need someone experienced and reliable to close the gap at least to save the season from disaster. Betting 5 million to fix the biggest issue is not a big deal.
      And Acerbi is strong work horse almost immortal one. He is not retiring next season.

    Ffs Acerbi is the most overrated intalian player of all time. The slowest defender in whole Serie A and on top of tath his positioning is always terrible. No no no, no no, no no no. God no, please help us!

      That’s basically what I said, only not in as much details and those two muppets got all salty.

      Acerbi is garbage. He was never even decent, seriously overrated and shit player.

  3. Nelli says:

    Pay him 5 million to stay away. JK but I bet there are more useful players available for around 5M.
