Lazio Face Tough Challenge in Pursuit of Morgan Whittaker


Serie A side Lazio are reportedly interested in acquiring the services of Morgan Whittaker, the former Swansea City player. Transfer insider Fabrizio Romano suggests that Lazio have submitted a proposal for the talented winger. However, the negotiations might prove to be challenging as Plymouth Argyle is determined to retain Whittaker’s services beyond the end of the current transfer window.

While Lazio are actively exploring options to strengthen their squad, securing a deal for Whittaker may not be a straightforward task. Plymouth Argyle are keen on holding onto the winger, and their reluctance to part ways with him is evident in their commitment to keeping him beyond the current transfer window.

Lazio’s interest in EFL (English Football League) talents has been noticeable in recent days, with links to Sunderland’s Jack Clarke and Norwich City’s Jonathan Rowe also surfacing. However, both Sunderland and Norwich City find themselves in strong negotiating positions with their star players, much like Plymouth Argyle with Morgan Whittaker.

Whittaker, having previously played for Swansea City, brings a wealth of talent and potential to the table. His skill set has evidently caught the eye of Lazio, prompting them to pursue a deal. However, the negotiations are expected to be influenced by Plymouth’s determination to keep hold of their valuable asset.
