Ciro Immobile: Lazio players will welcome David Silva with open arms

Lazio striker Ciro Immobile says the players will welcome David Silva "with open arms".

The Manchester City captain is set to sign for Lazio in a Bosman transfer at the end of their Champions League campaign.

Immobile said, "Great player and great experience, we are waiting for him with open arms. I can't wait for him to arrive, before Lazio players we are Lazio fans."

On his teammates, the striker continued: "Luis Alberto and (Sergej) Milinkovic-Savic above all, kids have become men, finally aware of their qualities.

"Luis has no room for growth on a technical level because in his role he is among the strongest in the world, he can and must improve mentally. Sergej, an upper class, now has an extraordinary command of the field.

"But the great surprise is (Francesco) Acerbi. I knew him as an opponent, he is a magnificent teammate, one who adds, a great professional, the care he has for his body should be taken as an example by everyone. Francesco is able to get where he wants."
