Lazio striker Felipe Caicedo is hoping to sign a new contract with the Biancocelesti, with his current deal set to expire next year.

According to a report from Italian radio broadcaster Radiosei (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the 32-year-old Ecuadorian striker has again proven to be a decisive player under coach Simone Inzaghi this season, often making the difference in the final moments of games.

Caicedo’s eight league goals this campaign has brought the Roman club nine points, an important amount in the race for a top four finish.

With his contract expiring in 2022, the 32-year-old Caicedo is keen to sign a new deal and has switched agents to Matteo Materazzi. Many fans are also pushing the Ecuadorian striker to stay, appreciating his ability to net a late winner.

At the moment, Lazio’s management seemingly would prefer to rejuvenate the squad, leaving Caicedo out of the club’s plans, but the Ecuadorian striker is keen to change their minds.

The former Espanyol man is set to start against Hellas Verona on Sunday and will work hard to perform to his best in the remaining games of the season.
