The agent of Lyon’s Ederson has confirmed that the player will join Lazio at some stage over the summer.
The Brazilian is available on a free transfer given that his contract will expire next month and a switch to the Italian capital is on the horizon.
“Lazio President Claudio Lotito has been chasing him for five years,” representative Antonio Caliendo told Radio Mana Mana.
“His future will be at Lazio. He is really keen to play in Italy even if he has received some important offers from Brazil.
“I’ve talked to Lazio and there are just some secondary details to iron out – what counts is the desire to do a deal.
“I’ll soon meet up again with Lazio and I hope the signatures will then follow.”
The 26-year-old has been with Lyon since his 2008 switch from Nice.
