First brought in on loan, Florent Hadergjonaj’s transfer from Ingolstadt was made permanent over the summer after Huddersfield Town managed to avoid relegation following their return to the Premier League.
Paying £4.5m for the 24-year-old, the Terriers have relied on him a lot this season, starting him 17 times in all competitions at various positions ranging from right-back to central midfield.
Left on the bench against Manchester City, it remains to be seen whether the Switzerland international ends up being a part of Jan Siewert’s plans, but Lazio are reportedly taking an avid interest in his situation.
Corriere dello Sport name Hadergjonaj as one of the possible alternatives to Davide Zappacosta should Chelsea fail to lower their asking price, with the Serie A side ‘keeping tabs’ on him.
With Huddersfield Town set to face Everton on Tuesday evening at John Smith’s Stadium, everyone will have their answer regarding the Swiss defender and his early relationship with Siewert sooner rather than later.
If he doesn’t start, that could be the opening Lazio have been waiting for.
