Lazio striker Ciro Immobile says he cannot wait to link-up with Manchester City midfielder David Silva in Serie A next season.
The 34-year-old Spaniard is widely expected to join the Biancolesti on his three-year deal when his City contract comes to an end after the Champions League campaign is over.
And Immobile says Silva is a potential new signing that will delight the Lazio players and supporters.
When asked about Silva, the Italian striker said: ‘Great player and great experience, we are waiting for him with open arms.
‘I can’t wait for him to arrive, before Lazio players we are Lazio fans.’
The Spanish midfielder will be eager to link-up with Immobile too, with the 30-year-old forward one of the hottest strikers in Europe this season.
The Lazio star scored 39 goals in 44 appearances as his side briefly threatened to topple perennial leaders Juventus at the top of the Serie A table.
Silva, meanwhile, is set to arrive at Lazio having enjoyed a successful time at City, winning 14 major trophies with the Premier League side including four top-flight titles.
He joined the blue half of Manchester in 2010 and has since made 435 appearances, scored 77 goals and registered 144 assists.
And while the Spaniard still managed to register double digit assists numbers in his final Premier League season, the 34-year-old has opted for a new challenge with the side who finished the 2019-20 Serie A season in fourth spot.
