As reported by Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio earlier today, this afternoon’s meeting between the coach’s agent Fali Ramadani and the Biancocelesti’s sporting director Igli Tare has brought the parties closer together, with the agent convinced that his client’s best destination is Lazio.

The operation will cost the Biancocelesti around €25 million, accounting for the salaries of Sarri and his staff, as well as any related add-ons like Champions League qualification or the Scudetto bonus.

The Roman club made Sarri their priority as soon as it became apparent that he was interested in taking over the post previously held by Simone Inzaghi, who left the Italian capital to join Inter.
