Lazio close on Yilmaz

Lazio are reportedly down to details in their negotiations with Trabzonspor talent Burak Yilmaz for €5m.

The Turkish international striker had also been linked with Tottenham and other Premier League teams, but La Gazzetta dello Sport and local papers are confident he’s heading to Rome.

It is claimed a deal has already been struck with the player after agent Ali Egesel came to Italy twice to discuss a four-year contract worth €2.5m.

Yilmaz has a €5m price-tag and the only remaining issue is whether Lazio have to pay the full sum immediately or spread over four instalments.
