Lazio academy manager Mauro Bianchessi has already closed several incoming deals and has now secured the future of the 16-year-old Troise as well.

The 2005-born midfielder is part of Tommaso Rocchi’s Under-18 squad, playing individuals two years older than him.

The Italian teenager is one of Bianchessi’s most successful signings and the player has a bright future ahead of him, should he continue working hard and progressing well.

For now, the exact terms of the deal are unclear, but it’s an important step for Troise, who can now focus all his attention on his football.

Troise made eight appearances for Lazio’s Under-18 squad this season, for a total of 606 minutes. He scored one goal in that time.
