Kumbulla to Lazio, Cetin to Verona

Lazio are currently meeting Verona chiefs over Marash Kumbulla, with Roma’s Mert Cetin set to replace the defender at the Bentegodi.

Sky Sport Italia and Tuttomercatoweb report Lazio President Claudio Lotito is holding face-to-face talks with Verona counterpart Maurizio Setti in Rome this afternoon.

According to Corriere dello Sport and Nicolo Schira, the Aquile are offering €18-20m plus two players, purported to be Cristiano Lombardi and Riza Durmisi.

The deal suits both parties as Verona can write down a strong profit on their balance sheet before June 30 and Lazio will get a long-term replacement for Stefan Radu.

As for who will replace the Albanian, Sky and TMW agree Hellas have settled on Cetin, negotiating a season-long loan with an option to buy.

However, Roma would have included a buyback option for the Turk, who only signed from Genclerbirligi last summer, making five appearances.
