Lazio close to Basta

Lazio are reported as in advanced negotiations with Udinese for the transfer of winger Dusan Basta.

Sky Sport Italia are running the line this week that the Serbia-capped 29-year-old is just ‘a step away’ from a move to the Olimpico, to end six years on the books at the Zebrette.

It is understood that Basta’s move may be included in the two clubs’ continued negotiations for full ownership of Antonio Candreva, with both players falling under the same representation.

Sky believe that an economic agreement between the clubs for Basta is reached and that only contractual terms between player and Lazio must now be reached.

However, believe that the Aquile are yet to agree a fee with Udinese for Basta, but that figures are close and centring on the Udine outfit’s valuation of €7m.
