Lazio Will Complete Deal for Bordeaux’s Basic After Signing Roma’s Pedro

Lazio will complete the transfer of Bordeaux midfielder Toma Basic after they have signed Roma winger Pedro.

As reported by Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio last night, the Biancocelesti are finally making more moves in the transfer market, with president Claudio Lotito set to imminently inject cash into the club in order to solve their issue with the liquidity ratio.

The Biancocelesti are currently working on signing Roma winger Pedro on a free transfer, and once that deal has been finalised, they will then secure the signature of Basic.
