Lazio Poised to Announce Three New Defensive Signings

Lazio are finalizing the deals for three newcomers. Alessio Romagnoli, Mario Gila, and Luis Maximiano have all taken the medicals Tuesday. The Biancocelesti have completed the overhaul of their defense considering the recent signing of Nicolò Casale.

The club finally decided to push the envelope for the former Milan captain, who was a free agent, even though they have not found a solution for Francesco Acerbi. The parties reached agreement on a five-year contract for just below €3M wages plus €500k add-ons, according to Corriere dello Sport. A large offer from Fulham expedited the process. Monza reached out to inquire about their veteran, SportMediaset reports. However, he is hoping to transfer to a top club.

Lazio have filled their void between the sticks with Maximiano. He is joining on a €10M move from Granada, including add-ons, Goal informs. The capital side pursued Marco Carnesecchi and Guglielmo Vicario. They eventually picked the Portuguese goalie, who was less expensive. Gila completed the physical tests today as well. He had come in last week, but he had tested positive for COVID-19. The Biancocelesti purchased him from Real Madrid for €5M, Tuttomercatoweb relays.

Our Take on the Lazio Signings

Considering their usual modus operandi, the management really put pedal to the medal to quench any possible sign of malcontent from Maurizio Sarri. The boss will have the whole summer to work on his new rearguard. Luiz Felipe is a sneaky big loss, as he still had untapped potential, but the line will clearly improve as a whole.
