Lazio defender Luis Pedro Cavanda is considering a move to Sunderland, according to his agent.
Ulisse Savini has confirmed that his client has plenty of offers available to him as he weighs up a potential move away from the Serie A club, with Sunderland boss Paolo Di Canio one of his suitors.
Di Canio is in the process of completing a squad overhaul at the Stadium of Light, after Sunderland finished in 17th place last season, narrowly avoiding relegation.
If a deal for Cavanda were to be completed, the defender would follow in the footsteps of Modibo Diakite, another client of Savini’s who has already become one of Di Canio’s six signings so far this close-season.
“We’ll see. We are considering various possibilities and among them is Sunderland,” Savini told Tuttomercatoweb.
Explaining Diakite’s decision to opt for the Premier League over a possible opportunity to stay in Italy with either Inter or Napoli, Savini added: “The reasons why Inter and Napoli did not take Diakite are several and they are not economic reasons, but rather that Sunderland showed they really wanted him.
“We are grateful and the player is delighted to have become their player.”
