Lazio Captain Lucas Biglia On Way To Milan
According to reports in Italy, Lazio’s midfielder and leader Lucas Biglia is on the verge of signing for Serie A rivals Milan. The two clubs have agreed a deal worth €18 million plus €4 million in bonuses, with Biglia signing a 3-year contract worth €2.5 million per season, claim newspapers La Repubblica and La Stampa.
The 31-year-old has one year left on his deal with Lazio and has failed to find an agreement on a possible contract renewal with the Biancocelesti. “I don’t know if I’m staying”, he confessed to a fan last week as he was leaving the Formello training centre. The former Anderlecht man is believed to be looking for a new challenge and is reportedly ready to consider moving to San Siro.
Milan boss Vincenzo Montella has set out to reinforce the midfield area, having asked the club officials to try and secure the signature of Biglia and Lyon highly-rated star Corentin Tolisso, whose price tag is €40 million, La Gazetta dello Sport suggests.
Biglia has made 133 appearances for Lazio since arriving from the Belgian Pro League. He had an impressive season, having made 34 appearances, and having scored five goals with four assists.
He is set to become the fourth signing for the San Siro side, after Musacchio, Kessie and Rodriguez – and will meet up with few Argentine compatriots in the squad, such as Leonel Vangioni and new arrival, Mateo Musacchio.
