As reported by Italian newspaper Il Tempo (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the 24-year-old Croatian midfielder has been one of the Biancocelesti’s main transfer targets for a while now and it seems that the Roman club will finally be getting their man.
Lazio expect Basic to arrive in Rome today, where he’ll take his medicals before signing for the club. It’s likely that he won’t be officially registered just yet, due to the now infamous liquidity ratio which is stopping the Biancocelesti from confirming their new signings.
The 24-year-old Basic made 34 Ligue 1 appearances last season, for a total of 2611 minutes. In that time, he scored four goals and provided one assist.
