Lazio target Nantes defender Diego Carlos

There has been numerous defenders linked with Lazio in past few months.

According to a report from Calciomercato, Lazio are targeting Nantes defender Diego Carlos.

The Brazil international joined Nantes from Estoril Praia for a fee in the region of 2 million euros in July 2016. His contract expires in the summer of 2022.

Carlos has played 67 times for Nantes since signing from Estoril Praia, scoring three goals in that time.

The Brazil international has been in impressive form this season.

Adding a defender remains Lazio’s top priority this summer and Simone Inzaghi will have drafted a shortlist of a number of possible targets he could approach in the coming weeks.

The Lazio manager is in the market for a new defender when the transfer window reopens.

Simone Inzaghi is looking to shore up his defensive options and Nantes’s Diego Carlos happens to be a target. Inzaghi has been impressed by his performances this season and could make a move in the coming transfer window.

Lazio will be in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.

According to Calciomercato (via France Football), “According to the last reports from France Football, Lazio have identified Nantes central defender Diego Carlos as one of their prime targets ahead of this summer’s transfer window. The Biancocelesti have resigned themselves to losing Stefan de Vrij once his contract expires on June 30th, with the Dutchman set to join Serie A rivals Inter for free.”


Nantes are not in a position where they need to sell and would like to keep hold of the defender, but right offer may force the club to consider a deal.

The 25-year-old is certainly a player that would strengthen the current Lazio squad and would be a good buy in the summer transfer window.

If he turns out to be a key player like many expect, it could be one of the club’s smartest transfers.
