Lazio have been given the all-clear to push for Ederson, as Olympique Lyonnais declared he’s leaving in January.
The midfielder has been linked with a move to Italy for some time, but up until now Lyon President Jean-Michel Aulas had always dismissed any offers for the player.
However, he seems to have changed his mind as the spectre of losing stars on a Bosman looms large.
“We will do everything possible to ensure the players whose contracts are set to expire can leave Lyon in January.”
The Brazilian could cost Lazio up to €10m, even though he only has six months left on his contract.
