Lazio are apparently closing in on hiring Sinisa Mihajlovic as Coach, with only details to a contract offer needing to be finalised.
The Serb is approaching the end of an initial half-season tenure at Sampdoria, who he successfully led out of relegation battle with weeks to spare, but with whom he has so far failed to agree a contract beyond the summer.
Following on from speculation that they will be considering current Coach Edy Reja’s future this week,  Lazio are being strongly linked with bringing in Miha for next season.
Il Tempo are running the line that club President Claudio Lotito has contacted the 45-year-old with a view to hiring him and the pair have even discussed economic aspects to a potential contract offer.
It is seen that only details perhaps remain before a final agreement between the parties is reached.
Mihajlovic spent six years at the Stadio Olimpico as a player and took part in the club’s celebrations yesterday at the stadium to mark the 40-year anniversary of their first Scudetto win.
