Lazio midfielder Sofian Kiyine has officially transferred to fellow Serie A side Venezia.

As announced in an official statement last night, the 23-year-old Moroccan midfielder has joined the newly promoted side on a loan deal which contains a conditional obligation to buy clause, linked to sporting results.

The 23-year-old Kiyine signed for Lazio in 2019 from Chievo Verona in a deal worth around €1.5 million. He was immediately loaned out to Salernitana and never made an appearance for the Biancocelesti in his two years contracted to the club.

Considering that Kiyine’s loan contains a conditional obligation to buy clause, there’s a chance that he’ll return to Lazio next summer.

The Biancocelesti are working on selling a variety of unneeded fringe players and need to close out a few deals today, with the transfer window set to close tonight.
