Mats Hummels is one of the most sought out players in this winter transfer window as the German defender has expressed his desire to leave Borussia Dortmund due to their disastrous string of performances as the club is located at the bottom spots in the Bundesliga.
Not all the clubs in the world have the sufficient financial power to sign the German defender and certain teams have to look somewhere else for a player that can solve their respective problems and needs.
Lazio and Fiorentina have taken a big interest in signing Jeffrey Gouweleeuw and Wesley Hoedt.
Both players are young defenders that are active performers in the German side Az Alkmaar and this means that the club is not interested in allowing the defensive duo to leave without being offered anything significant in return.
Wesley Hoedt has already refused to sign a contract extension with Az Alkmaar and when his contract expires at the end of the season, he will turn into a free agent.
Lazio is interested in signing Hoedt during the January transfer window but they will have to offer Az Alkmaar something good enough to keep them enticed in allowing the defender to leave before his contract reaches its end in a few months’ time.
There are a few rumors that have begun to spread around claiming that Wesley Hoedt has already agreed personal terms with Lazio as he is indeed interested in making a move to the Italian club but no official statements have been released by either the club or the player.
Lazio is in need of a defender after Santiago Gentiletti sustained a serious knee ligament injury that is going to be leaving him out of action for a significantly long period of time.
