Lega Pro side Alma Juventus Fano are showing an interest in former Fiorentina midfielder Andrea Lazzari, according to claims in the Italian media. The 31-year-old was recently released by Bari, and has been linked with Leeds United in recent weeks.

TMW have today reported Fano are looking to close in on Lazzari, and can land the veteran midfielder on a free transfer. The fourth tier Italian side are looking to strengthen in midfield before the transfer deadline at the end of the month, and hoping to get a deal done quickly. With the lack of options for Lazzari it’s been claimed he will accept Fano’s proposal.

Lazzari played under Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino during his 3 seasons with Cagliari, and last month hinted he would welcome a re-union with his former boss. At the time Lazzari said he hadn’t yet heard from Cellino, but would welcome a move abroad.

Whilst under Cellino at Cagliari the player made nearly 100 appearances before getting his big move to Fiorentina. The midfielder has also represented Italy U21s on 9 occasions.
