OFFICIAL: Lazio acquire Genoa’s Romulo
After new positive contacts a few hours ago, the negotiation between Genoa and Lazio for Romulo seem to have come to a conclusion. According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Lazio will acquire the player on loan; Genoa were able to insert a right of redemption which was the stumbling block of the negotiation.
As confirmed yesterday by sporting director Igli Tare: “There are ideas from Italy and abroad, but more from abroad.” A true statement, nothing had seemed to progress and with only today remaining in the transfer market, the Biancocelesti needed to act quickly if they wanted to acquire a new signing. For this reason, they signed Romulo – the player has been of interest to Lazio since the summer. Now 31-years of age, the Brazilian has plenty of experience in the top flight of Italian football. Fiorentina, Verona, Juventus, Genoa – Tare seems to have targeted him for this reason.
