Reports: Parma overtaken as Lazio close in on capture of unwanted Milan defender

By Oliver Fisher -

It appears as though a new team have accelerated their pursuit of Mateo Musacchio and are closing in on signing him, a report claims.

According to what was revealed by the journalist Gianluca Di Marzio to Sky (via MilanLive), Lazio have taken a very strong interest in Musacchio as they are looking to strengthen Simone Inzaghi’s defence.

New contacts with Milan are expected today to define and close the operation, with the former Villarreal man having surpassed other targets such as Jean-Clair Todibo in their order of preference.

It seemed as though the Argentine was all set for a move to Parma, but Lazio’s pressing appears to be decisive. In fact, MilanNews are also reporting that Mateo Musacchio is close to Lazio.

Lotito’s team have accelerated in the last few hours for the Rossoneri defender and the white smoke could arrive today. Contacts are frequent with the aim of closing immediately.
