Fulham target Thomas Strakosha makes emotional Lazio farewell

Thomas Strakosha has confirmed he's leaving Lazio.

The goalkeeper is off contract at the end of next month and is in advanced talks with Premier League new-boys Fulham.

Strakosha said: "I can't find the right words to thank Lazio, the club and all the staff. I owe to all of you, to the fans for what I have become. I leave with a heartache, I arrived when I was a kid and I'm happy with my path. I hope I have managed to convey a dream to all children. Starting from the bottom and getting to the top can really happen.

"I can only say thank you to everyone, I have no words. I will remember Lazio, I will always be a special fan. I have never spoken to any club for the respect of this club that has been my family. Now I wish everyone the best and keep it up.

"I remember with joy the first derby I played, which we won in the Coppa Italia. There are so many matches and it is difficult to remember them all. I have no regrets, I have always given my best, maybe I would like to replay the game against Inter in 2018 when we lost the Champions League.

"Thank you all from the bottom of my heart and I farewell all the Biancocelesti fans."
