Lazio consider Mellberg swoop

Lazio are mulling over a move for Olympiakos’ veteran defender Olof Mellberg, according to Corriere dello Sport.
Lazio are flying high in second place in Serie A, but despite their fantastic start they are keen to bolster their squad in January. Former Juventus centre-back Mellberg seems to fit the bill for the capital club.
Mellberg, 33, spent just one season with Juventus in 2008/09 before heading to Greece to join Olympiakos. The hugely experienced Swedish international previously made his name in the Premier League with Aston Villa, after a spell with Racing Santander in Spain, and AIK and Degerfors in Sweden.
Lazio have identified Mellberg as a possible recruit to bolster their defence as Olympiakos would not demand a significant fee for a player with just 18 months remaining on his contract. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
