Lazio are reportedly in advanced talks with Bodo/Glimt over a move for Erik Botheim in January, but the Aquile must sell to buy and Vedat Muriqi could be the one leaving.
The Biancocelesti have started working to reinforce the squad in the upcoming transfer market, to satisfy Maurizio Sarri, who is expected to sign a new deal until June 2025 with the club.
But the coach has asked for the club to invest and Lazio are, according to Il Corriere dello Sport, ready to make a move for Botheim.
The Norwegian striker impressed against Roma in the UEFA Europa Conference League and the Aquile have reportedly entered talks with Bodo/Glimt and are on the verge of reaching an agreement to sign the player this winter.
The young striker would gladly accept the destination and Sarri would be happy to have him available, according to the newspaper.
The main problem for Lazio concerns the possibility of signing new players, as they must sell before buying.
To unlock the Botheim deal with the Norwegian champions, Muriqi could be sacrificed. The Kosovo international, who arrived in September 2020, has struggled to convince since his move from Fenerbahce and doesn’t seem to be part of Sarri’s plans at Formello.
