Lazio close to Helder Postiga

Lazio are reportedly ready to take Helder Postiga on loan from Valencia with an option to buy.

According to Sky Sport Italia, the negotiations are at a very advanced stage and personal terms agreed with agent Jorge Mendes.

The 31-year-old Portuguese international would arrive on a six-month loan with option to make the move permanent at the end of the season.

Postiga’s current contract with Valencia runs until June 2015.

He would be a replacement for Sergio Floccari, who is on the verge of joining Sassuolo.

Postiga only joined Valencia from Real Zaragoza in August for €3m, scoring four goals in 23 competitive games for the club this season.

The forward has also played for Sporting Lisbon, Porto, Panathinaikos, Saint-Etienne and Tottenham.
