Edy Reja looks set to leave Lazio at the end of the season, with three possible replacements already being considered by the club.

The 68-year-old returned for a second spell with the club midway through the season following the departure of Vladimir Petkovic, but after an initial improvement results have again become inconsistent leaving the Biancocelesti sitting 9th in Serie A.

The Rome edition of Corriere della Sera suggests that this poor form may be enough to see the former Napoli coach lose his job.

It is believed that club president Claudio Lotito and technical coordinator Igli Tare are already considering three options with regard to who could replace Reja.

The first option is to promote former striker and current Primavera coach Simone Inzaghi to the role, while Il Tempo suggest that Basel’s Murat Yakin, who was reportedly originally approached before Reja’s appointment, could be another candidate.

However, a coach who has already had a job in Serie A could also be on the radar of the capital club, with Tuttosport indicating that Stefano Colantuono of Atalanta could also be in the frame despite being understood to have already turned down the job.

The Aquile’s current coach though last week claimed that he would still be at the club next season.
