At the very beginning, let me say that Sergio Almiron (in picture on the left) is an Argentinian player who currently plays for Serie A`s biggest surprise team, Empoli, who currently lie on the 5th place in the standings, in front of the teams like AC Milan, Fiorentina, Udinese, Sampdoria etc.
Now something about Almiron`s skills and how would they integrate on the current Lazio midfield. It has been revealed by italian daily IlTempo that Lazio is seriously interested in him. We were interested last summer as well, but Delio Rossi opted for Cristian Ledesma instead, justifying his purchase that he knew Ledesma better as he coached him at Lecce. Almiron is a typical central midfielder of a Juan Sebastian Veron`s type, which means, terrific control of the ball, fantastic passing abilities, powerful shot and great reading and vision of the game. His form in the past two seasons has seen a significang increace, hence the interest of teams like Inter, Torino, Juventus and Fiorentina. I strongly believe that he would perfectly suit in a 3 men midfield Lazio currently plays or in a typical 4-4-2 system paired in the middle by either Ledesma or one of Mudingayi/Mutarelli.
