Basic to Lazio a done deal

Lazio have reportedly reached an agreement with Bordeaux to sign 24-year-old midfielder Toma Basic.

The Croatian will move to the Stadio Olimpico in a €7m deal plus €1m in bonuses, depending on Biancocelesti’s Champions League qualification.

The 24-year-old will undergo his medicals with the Serie A side in the coming days.

As per Sportitalia, he had also reached an agreement with Napoli, but the Azzurri didn’t shake hands on the player’s transfer fee, so Lazio could finalize the deal.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Basic’s imminent arrival in Rome doesn’t mean Luis Alberto will leave unless Lazio receive a ‘crazy bid’ for the Spaniard during the last week of the summer transfer window.
