Lazio Slated to Finalize Two Further Signings Soon

Lazio are set to bring in two more pieces early next week, Ivan Provedel and Matias Vecino. The goalkeeper has been the top candidate to serve as the deputy throughout the summer.

As per La Repubblica, the Biancocelesti have struck an agreement with Spezia on a €2.5M fee. He has starred in 76 Serie A matches, allowing 143 goals and keeping 11 clean sheets. The Aquilotti would like to come to terms for Bartlomiej Dragowski before greenlighting his departure. They are €1M apart on his valuation in the talks with Fiorentina.

Provedel and Vecino will likely take the medicals and sign their Lazio contracts Monday, Il Secolo XIX reports (via SportMediaset). The shot-stopper will try to challenge newcomer Luis Maximiano for the starting job. The Uruguayan veteran will come in as a free agent to add depth.

The ensuing purchase of the Biancocelesti will be a left-back. They are keen on Destiny Udogie, but his price tag is very high. Maurizio Sarri is a fan of Emerson Palmieri, and the management will try to set up a €10M deal, on an initial loan, with Chelsea, Radiosei informs. Emanuele Valeri, who is a boyhood fan of the club, is a readymade fallback. Though, there haven’t been many contacts to sign him thus far, Alfredo Pedullà reports. Cremonese onboarded his prospective replacement in Giacomo Quagliata from Heracles.

Our Take on Lazio Adding Provedel and Vecino

The goalie is arguably overqualified for the role, as he would start for most smaller clubs. The angst to sign a new left-back is a little surprising. They do lack a lefty, but Adam Marusic was a steady hand there last season.
