Cruzeiro left-back Vinicius is in Rome to complete his Lazio transfer. “This is a great opportunity for me.”
The 20-year-old Brazilian defender flew in this morning and is undergoing a medical before putting pen to paper.
He is a free agent, as his contract with Cruzeiro has expired.
“I am very happy and know this is a great opportunity for me,” Vinicio told journalists.
“I will settle in easily here because there are already so many Brazilians.”
This week Lazio are also giving medicals to Anderlecht midfielder Lucas Biglia and Brazilian Felipe Anderson.
