Sergio Almiron

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.

    I think it would be best suited for him to go to Lazio too – he hasn’t got the big name to play at Inter or Juve, even though he has the quality. I cannot see him getting ahead of Dejan, Vieira, Cambiasso – let alone anyone else Inter sign. As for Juve, he could initially get in the team quite easily, but the pressure to perform will be greater – and whether he can cope with it, is another matter. Playing at Empoli suits him; no pressure and he’s pretty much the main-man. Lazio will be suited to this too, as there won’t be much pressure (except from the Ultras!!!) and he can do his business as the main creative player (which in my view, is what Lazio has really missed this season). If he does come to Inter mind you, I’d be pleased to have him – just he’ll have to sit on the bench and be a squad player like Solari, Mariano, Dacourt and others – and I just think from a sporting view, it would be a waste of talent.
