Italian Journalist Pedullà Confirms Meeting Between Lazio & Hysaj Tomorrow

Free agent Elseid Hysaj will meet with Lazio on Thursday tomorrow to sign a four-year deal with the club.

As discussed by Italian journalist Alfredo Pedullà in an interview with Sportitalia (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the deal for the 27-year-old Albanian will be closed out tomorrow, securing coach Maurizio Sarri’s first signing in charge.

The meeting between Elseid Hysaj and Lazio will no longer take place on Wednesday but Thursday to formalize a 4-year contract.

Therefore, the Albanian will be reunited with Maurizio Sarri, the new Biancocelesti coach.

The 27-year-old Hysaj’s contract expires with Napoli tomorrow, meaning that he will then be able to sign for the Biancocelesti on a free transfer, putting pen to paper on a four-year deal.

Sarri specifically requested the Albanian full-back, finding him to be the perfect player for his 4-3-3 or 4-3-1-2 system. The pair have worked together at both Napoli and Empoli in the past.
