Lazio close in on Ederson

Lazio have moved closer to signing Ederson from Lyon in the summer, his representative has revealed.

“I met with Lazio yesterday,” Antonio Caliendo told La Lazio Siamo Noi. “We took some forward steps, but nothing has been decided yet.

“Things are going well and there is a desire from both parties to reach a happy ending. There could be something agreed by the end of April.”

Ederson, a 26-year-old midfielder, is available on a Bosman free transfer once his contract expires at the end of the campaign.

“He’s having problems at Lyon right now,” Caliendo continued. “He’s not really seen the pitch since he decided to not renew his contract.”

Milan are also understood to have made enquiries about the Brazilian who Lyon signed in 2008 from Nice.

“Lazio will make a great signing,” Caliendo stated in another interview with Radio Mana Mana. “President Claudio Lotito has been chasing him for five years.

“The player wants to come to Italy and his future could be at Lazio, even if he’s also received some important offers from Brazil.

“Milan? They spoke to the player, but they’ve not been in touch since.”
