Fresh reports emerging from Italian news media outlets are all suggesting that Italian Serie A outfit Lazio are highly interested in snapping up unsettled Real Madrid Winger Vinicius Junior and want to make him a new Lazio player when the summer window opens. Vinicius is currently enduring a mixed season at the Spanish giants this campaign and has rarely been the player that he is known to be.

He has not really impressed Real Madrid bosses this term and it is believed that the reason he continues to make it to the starting XI is because of the several first-team stars who have been sidelined with injuries this term. The Brazilian winger was in a better situation by this time last campaign but he has not been able to replicate the form that saw him terrorize La Liga defenders last season.

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.

Lazio managed to continue their stellar progress under Simeone Inzaghi after going eight matches without a defeat. Even then, manager Inzaghi claimed that there was room for improvement from the squad.

Since suffering the 2-0 loss against AC Milan in the middle of September, Lazio have been undefeated in all competitions. It has been an impressive turnaround of fortune since the appointment of Inzaghi. The run has helped Lazio stay in touch with the top three. The opportunity to finish in the Champions League spots will be very crucial for the club in order to make progress going forward.
