Cipriano close to Lazio move: the latest

Negotiations between Santos and Lazio to bring Gustavo Cipriano to Rome are progressing smoothly. A profile greatly appreciated for over a year now, according to the latest reports, Igli Tare and the Biancocelesti are said to have formulated a new proposal for the 18-year-old defender. This is a two year loan, with the possibility of acquiring the player at the end for around 750 thousand.

However, after two proposals were declined last summer, rumours from South America state that the term of the loan is still an issue: Santos want to reduce it to solely one season. The only detail to be agreed upon, this negotiation finally seems to be approaching its conclusion.

In possession of a European passport, the agreement with the player has already been obtained. This is also an important detail, as he would not be filling a EU spot in the team, leaving room for another acquisition this summer.
