Report: Lazio Set to Sign Sevilla Midfielder Franco Vasquez on a Free Transfer Deal

Lazio was regularly linked with Sevilla midfielder Franco Vasquez over the past year. One report late last year noted that Lazio had an interest in signing the Argentine midfielder over the winter transfer window. However, no such deal came to fruition in the end.

Now, Lazio is on the verge of finally signing Vasquez as the Spanish-based outlet TodoFichajes notes that the two sides have already come to terms on an agreement for next season.

The report adds that Lazio and Vasquez have finalized an agreement for a free transfer deal, which will make the Argentine the club’s first signing of the summer window.

It remains to be seen how this pre-contract deal will play out, whether Lazio may plan on announcing the deal over this season or wait until the summer transfer window opens.

Vasquez is currently in his fifth season with Sevilla. After being a reliable player for the club over the past seasons, the Argentine has totaled for a mere 15 appearances in all competitions over the ongoing campaign.

As mentioned, Vasquez is currently in the final year of his current contract with Sevilla.
