According to sources, Lazio and other Serie A teams are keeping an eye on Charlotte FC's designated player Karol Świderski. Although no official bid has been made for the striker, Maurizio Sarri's side are one of multiple Italian teams monitoring his development, and could look to make a bid for him in the summer.
In a recent interview with mlssoccer.com the Polish international stated that Europe is something "He doesn't think about now" and that he first " wants to win something" in Charlotte before deciding whether a move back to Europe would be in the books. These comments suggest that a move away from the Queen City this window is out of the question.
Świderski registered 10 goals and 4 assists in his first season with the black and blue, playing a key role in Charlotte's inaugural season that saw the team finish 9th in the Eastern Conference. The forward, turned midfield playmaker under Lattanzio, will look to bolster those numbers this season as Charlotte have added another designated player to the squad, Argentine Enzo Copetti. With reinforcements in the attack, Świderski has stated that he is staying with the Crown as they look to finish in a playoff spot this upcoming season.
