Lazio’s move for Cruzeiro man Vinicius is in doubt after reports he failed a medical today.
The 20-year-old left-back flew in this morning and spoke enthusiastically to waiting journalists at the airport.
However, Sky Sport Italia claim he failed a medical and will need further tests on a left foot injury before completing the transfer.
He spent over five hours with Lazio medical staff today and underwent several x-rays on that left foot.
The player picked up the injury in January and was out of action for over three months.
Vinicius is a free agent, as he is out of contract with Cruzeiro.
