When asked about Silva, the Italian striker said: ‘Great player and great experience, we are waiting for him with open arms.

The Spanish midfielder is eager to join Immobile as well, with the 30-year-old forward being one of the best strikers in Europe this season.
The Lazio star scored 39 goals in 44 appearances when his side briefly threatened to topple perennial leaders Juventus at the top of the Serie A table.

Silva, meanwhile, will arrive in Lazio after enjoying a successful time at City, winning 14 major trophies with the Premier League side, including four top titles.
He joined Manchester’s blue half in 2010 and has since played 435 times, scoring 77 goals and registering 144 assists.
And while the Spaniard still managed to record double digits in his last Premier League season, the 34-year-old has taken on a new challenge with the side that finished the 2019/20 Serie A season in fourth place.
