Benevento have agreed terms with Lazio for defender Mauricio and are just waiting for the player’s all-clear.
The 29-year-old Brazilian centre-back was out on loan at Spartak Moscow last season, but has not played at all this term.
He is still on the Lazio pay-roll and they are eager to farm him out for a six-month spell at Benevento.
According to Sky Sport Italia, the two clubs have agreed a deal, but are waiting for Mauricio to give the all-clear.
