Official: Lazio complete double signing

Lazio have completed the double signing of Sevilla’s Joaquin Correa and free-agent Milan Badelj.

The duo have passed medicals and have now been officially unveiled as Biancocelesti players.

The Argentine winger has signed a five-year contract with the Acquile and joins for a fee reported to be €16m.

It means that the former Sampdoria player returns to Serie A two years after joining the Spanish club.

Correa is viewed as a direct replacement for Felipe Anderson, who left Lazio for West Ham earlier in the summer.

Meanwhile, Croatian midfielder Badelj moves to the Stadio Olimpico on a four-year deal.

He joins on a free transfer after his contract with Fiorentina expired last month.

Badelj was part of his country's squad that reached the final of this summer's World Cup in Russia.
