Lazio Line Up Multiple Extensions, Seek New Left-Back

Manuel Lazzari has penned a new contract with Lazio, as the club just formalized. The Biancocelesti won’t stop there, as Danilo Cataldi and Luka Romero are next in line. The management is also negotiating with Felipe Anderson, Radiosei informs.

The fullback is now tied down until 2027, when he’ll be 34. He will de facto finish his career with the Italian side. He has progressively won over Maurizio Sarri, who wasn’t starting him at first as he was too offensive-minded. The former SPAL star, who was pure wing-back, eventually honed his defensive craft, which helped him earn a regular spot in the Italy roster as well.

Lazzari will get a small pay bump from Lazio. His salary will grow from €1.3M to 1.7M per year. The talks with Romero will have a positive resolution soon too. Furthermore, the brass and Cataldi have strong mutual interest in continuing together. The midfielder has retained the starting job despite the arrival of Marcos Antonio. He just won his first Derby as the captain.

Anderson sliced his €5M wages in half to return to the Biancocelesti after a few underwhelming campaigns. He returned to stellar levels and will get a new long-term contract.

If they manage to trim the roster, Lazio will search for a left-back that interprets the role as dynamically as Lazzari on the right wing. Empoli’s Fabiano Parisi and Cremonese’s Emanuele Valeri have been on their shortlist for a while. The latest additions are Verona revelation Josh Doig and AZ Alkmaar’s starlet Milos Kerkez, who previously spent time in Milan’s youth academy, the outlet adds.
