Lazio Facing Juventus Competition for Italian Winger

Lazio Facing Juventus Competition for Italian Winger

Juventus have reportedly entered the fray for Monza star Andrea Colpani who is also on the Lazio radar. The 24-year-old has been one of the best revelations of the current Serie A campaign, especially in the early going.

The Italian is a youth product of Atalanta but had to leave the nest after struggling to find space at Gian Piero Gasperini’s court. In 2020, he made the nearby switch to Monza, initially on loan, before making his move permanent in 2022.

This term, Coplani enjoyed a stellar start to the season, bagging goals on a consistent basis. Although his scoring charts dropped in the long run, he’s still among the most coveted wingers in Serie A.

But while Lazio have been keeping tabs on Colpani, Tuttosport (via LazioNews24) claims Juventus are also interested in the Biancorossi star who fits the characteristics that the club is seeking.

The Bianconeri have been searching the market for a new winger, and were keen to sign Lazio star Felipe Anderson. Nevertheless, the latter snubbed the Old Lady in favor of a return to Brazil through the gates of Palmeiras. Therefore, Juve have turned their attention to other profiles, including Coplani, which is where their transfer plans could intertwine with Lazio once more.

This season, the Monza star has made 33 Serie A appearances thus far, contributing with eight goals and four assists. His contract with the Brianza side is valid until June 2028. Colpani’s exploits have earned him a call-up to the Italian national team, but he has yet to make his international debut.
