Lazio talent Raul Moro is close to agreeing to a contract extension with the Biancocelesti that will tie him to the club until 2026.

As reported by Italian media outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi earlier today, there have been positive talks over the last few days between sporting director Igli Tare and the Spanish teenager’s entourage, with the Roman club looking to extend the 18-year-old’s deal.

Moro’s current deal with Lazio expires at the end of next season and it is likely that he would have left Rome this summer should Simone Inzaghi have remained coach.

The winds of change have blown through now though, with the Spaniard having hopes of breaking into Maurizio Sarri’s first team. He will take part in this summer’s pre-season training camp in Auronzo.

The Lazio youngster’s new contract will expire in 2026, being a five-year deal, and everything will be fully finalized over the next few weeks.
