PSG Mercato: Lazio Eyes Paris SG Loanee Sergio Rico

Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Sergio Rico is currently on loan to RCD Mallorca; however, the future of the Spanish goalkeeper could lie somewhere else. 

According to the Italian newspaper Il Messaggero (via LazioNews24), Lazio has convinced Maurizio Sarri that Rico is a strong option for their goalkeeping position. Furthermore, the contracts for Thomas Strakosha and Pepe Reina are expiring, and the Italian club could be ready to start anew. 

Talks are reportedly going okay, and the expectancy is that an agreement can be achieved in the coming weeks, allowing Lazio to concentrate on other targets instead.

Rico has no future at the French capital with both Keylor Navas and Gianluigi Donnarumma standing in his way. Even if Navas were to leave, which is the logical case, the Italian goalkeeper would be the undisputed starter.

Meanwhile, a move to Lazio will allow Rico to compete for the starting role. The 28-year-old has made five appearances for Mallorca, conceding seven goals.
