Lazio close on De Vrij

Lazio are reportedly closing in on Feyenoord’s Dutch international Stefan De Vrij in a deal worth €8m.

The Biancocelesti have long been interested in the defender, who starred at the World Cup in Brazil and came away with a bronze medal.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Lazio have now raised their offer to €7m and it is very close to Feyenoord’s9m asking price.

It is believed that another meeting on Sunday will help push through the strategy and on Monday the agreement could be reached for €8m.

De Vrij had also been linked with Manchester United last month.
