Rome, June 14, 2022 – Lazio are waiting Alessio Romagnoli. The courtship has been going on for several weeks and now the deal could close in the best possible way. The defender is leaving the Milan on a free transfer and the biancocelesti are his favorite destination (also because of his support), but until now there was a distance between the salary requested by the player and that offered by Claudio Lotito which has now raised the bar to favor the signature.
New reinforcement in defense
In addition to the sales that must be closed by 30 June, the priority of Lazio is to find some more reinforcements in defense, the department that will suffer the most from this market with many goodbyes already scheduled. The need therefore is to find an experienced player who knows the Italian league well and is willing to enter the mechanisms of Maurizio Sarri, a coach who has always been very demanding with his defenders. The choice fell on Romagnoliidentified as the perfect reinforcement: the fact that it is a zero parameter then makes everything easier for Lotito who will thus save on card costs by bringing a good name to the squad.
The big obstacle so far has been the gap between the demand and supply of the engagement. The president of the Lazio he had played to the downside and the gap of 400,000 euros seemed too big to be able to complete this transfer. But in the last few days Lotito has raised its offer by coming very close to the player’s demands: for Romagnoli A new contract worth 2.8 million euros per season plus bonuses has been proposed, which could speed up the situation and lead to the signing in a short time. There will be only the commissions for the player’s agent to be added but this should not be a problem, as positive news is expected in the next few hours.
