Algeria winger Mohamed Fares to join Lazio in €10m deal

Lazio will finalise a €10m deal for Mohamed Fares from relegated SPAL next week, Alfredo Pedulla reports.

The Algeria winger missed much of the 2019-20 season with a ruptured cruciate ligament, returning just before the pandemic.

SPAL’s relegation to Serie B means Fares, 24, is available and Lazio have been pursuing him for a while.

The Biancocelesti postponed talks to focus on signing David Silva, who ended up at Real Sociedad.

Lazio and SPAL will hold a meeting this coming week to define the transfer, which will be worth about €10m.

A counterpart could be included in the deal, with SPAL admirers of Lazio forward Simone Palombi, 24, who has just returned from a loan spell at Cremonese.

Fares, who can play as a left-back or left winger, joined SPAL from Hellas Verona in 2018.

The French-born player has been capped nine times by Algeria and represented them at last year’s African Cup of Nations.

In addition to Fares, Lazio are very close to signing Pepe Reina from AC Milan and Fenerbahce striker Vedat Muriqi.

1/10 UPDATE:

Fares’ move to Lazio has finally been confirmed.
