Lazio Need to Up Offers to Complete Two Key Renewals

Lazio have been trying to prolong the contracts for Felipe Anderson and Mattia Zaccagni but haven’t been able to do so yet despite their optimism. They’ll need to improve their proposals to seal the deals, Il Messaggero informs (via OneFootball).

The negotiation with the Brazilian is a priority since he’s tied to the team only until June. The winger and president Claudio Lotito seemed on the same page about continuing together. On the other hand, the player wants €3M net per year to stay put, also considering the interest from Saudi Arabia and other European clubs. He makes €2.5M currently.

Zaccagni asks for the same sum as Felipe Anderson. He’s after a more sizeable pay bump since he earns €2M. He has a year and a half on his contract. Lazio are taking their time.

The parties appeared on the brink of coming to terms in the summer, but things have gone backward afterward. His agent Mario Giuffredi publicly slammed the Biancocelesti hierarchy for their lack of urgency. Despite the rumors, they have completed just one extension so far, Luis Alberto’s one.

Our Take on Lazio, Felipe Anderson, and Zaccagni

They are playing a dangerous game in both cases, as the Saudi suitors are a threat to materialize at any moment. Moreover, they probably would have to sell the latter if they don’t reach an agreement before next summer.
