Lazio preparing Caicedo bid

Lazio are getting ready to make an offer to Espanyol for striker Felipe Caicedo and could lodge the approach within the week.

AS cites Corriere Dello Sport as saying the Serie A club will bid between €5m and €7m for the Ecuador international, who is viewed in Rome as a replacement for Keita Balde Diao, who wants to leave the Stadio Olimpico.

It’s suggested that Espanyol would be receptive to the mooted figure, as they are looking to get Caicedo’s €2m-a-year wages off the books and a move to Girona broke down over Caicedo’s pay packet.

Caicedo is currently training away from his teammates while his future remains up in the air.
