D'Ippolito is not Pandev's agent, but he does deal with a number of Lazio players including Christian Ledesma. Having gathered inside knowledge at Formello, the agent feels it will be hard for Lazio to hold on to the prolific hitman. His revelations come just a week after Pandev's official agent, Carlo Pallavicino, revealed several clubs were after his client.
"From the information I have, it's difficult that Pandev will remain at Lazio," D'Ippolito told Lalaziosiamonoi.it.
"I think there is a 90 percent chance that he will leave. When you are 25 or 26 years old and you have four or five good offers from big clubs then it's hard to stay.
"I think it's normal to have a look around. There are many Italian and European teams on Pandev as he is a great player."
