Simone Inzaghi at the club’s Christmas dinner this week claimed Lazio was doing well though he admitted that there was difficulty en route. Inzaghi said he knows the challenges, having been around for 17 years considering his time as a player before he became the coach.

“We’re getting good results and I share that success with everyone from the club, doctors, kit saff and of course the players. This summer when I accepted the challenge, I knew it would be difficult.

“We’re happy right now because we’re doing well, but the difficult part is coming up. I have faith, because I can sense the confidence and enthusiasm from the first to the last. I have been here for 17 years, so I know the challenges.

“We had a tough week after losing the derby, but I have to give credit to the lads. I’ve lost derbies as a player and taken much longer to recover from it, but they fought back straight away to beat Sampdoria in Genoa,” Inzaghi said.

Same Lazio has been reported to be keen on landing Sampdoria striker Luis Muriel when the January transfer window opens in January. Napoli are also interested in the player who has netted eight times this season.

Italian newspaper Tuttosport reported that Lazio made the Columbian a top target when the window reopens. The report says that Lazio might add Filip Djordjevic or Wesley Hoedt in a bid to force the deal and lower the price tag of €13 million.

The Blucerchiati have declared that Muriel was not for sale except for any club that was ready to meet his release clause of €35 million. French and English sides are interested in out-of-favour player Djordjevic but adding him and not substantially adding cash might not get Lazio Muriel.
