As seen in a post on Pereira’s Twitter page yesterday, the 19-year-old Brazilian shot-stopper arrived on loan from the Ligue 1 side in October of last year but did suffer a disappointing season in the Italian capital.
Pereira failed to provide strong competition 19-year-old Italian goalkeeper Alessio Furlanetto, who exploded onto the scene this season, and so only made nine appearances across all competitions this season in total – six in the Primavera 1 TIM and three in the Coppa Italia.
Across his nine appearances, the Brazilian teenager conceded 24 goals and failed to keep any clean sheets, struggling to manage a poor defense in front of him.
The 19-year-old is a product of Gremio’s youth system, joining Monaco in January 2020. His contract expires with the Ligue 1 side at the end of next season in 2022.
Pereira posted a photo of himself in the Lazio shirt, accompanied by the caption:
Thanks for everything Lazio, an honour to wear this shirt this season.
🇧🇷 Obrigado por tudo Lazio, uma honra vestir essa camisa nesta temporada.
