Lazio show concrete Interest in Lazar Samardžić


According to Sky Sport Italia, Lazio have expressed a strong interest in Udinese midfielder Lazar Samardžić. The 21-year-old Serbian player has caught the attention of the Biancocelesti following an impressive season in Serie A.

Samardžić has been a key player for Udinese, making 34 appearances in Serie A in 2023-24, scoring six goals and providing two assists. His contributions were vital in helping Udinese secure their place in the top flight for another season.

In addition to his club performances, Samardžić has also been involved with the Serbian national team. He played 8 minutes in a draw against Slovenia and was on the bench for the match against England. His international experience adds to his growing reputation as a talented midfielder.

Sky Sport Italia detail how Lazio’s interest in Samardžić comes after his proposed move to Inter fell through at the last minute. The deal with Inter was reportedly worth €15 million, but it collapsed, opening the door for other clubs to make their move. Lazio are now looking to capitalize on this opportunity to strengthen their midfield.

Lazio are not the only club interested in Samardžić. Juventus are also reportedly pursuing the Udinese midfielder, adding to the competition for his signature. Udinese may try to retain their talented player, but the interest from top Serie A clubs indicates that a transfer could be on the horizon.
