Cagliari defender keen on Lazio move

The 24-year-old made an impressive last season and has been linked with Lazio, Genoa and Napoli.

“The Biancocelesti would be a good option for my client,” said Canini’s agent, Renzo Contratto.

“We haven’t had any contact yet but Michele would be happy to move to such a big club under Davide Ballardini, the man who discovered him while at Atalanta.

“Canini is a player which many teams have been chasing and if it wasn’t for his injury he would have already moved to one out of Juve, Milan or Inter.”
