Lazio secure Eibar's Escalante

Lazio have agreed terms to sign Gonzalo Escalante from Eibar as a free agent this summer, claim multiple Italian sources.

Sky Sport Italia, Sportitalia and more all confirm the deal has been done for the Argentine midfielder, whose current contract is due to expire in June.

The 26-year-old is the Eibar captain and has been at the club since 2015.

It won’t be his first foray into Italian football, as Escalante was briefly at Catania in 2014-15, making 26 Serie B appearances.

He is also in possession of an Italian passport.

Perhaps because of these negotiations, Escalante is not included in Eibar’s squad to face Valencia this weekend.
