Lazio have officially signed attacking midfielder Mattia Zaccagni from Hellas Verona on a four-year contract.

As seen on Lega Serie A’s website earlier this evening, the Biancocelesti have submitted the 26-year-old Italian’s contract to the league for registration, finally completing the deal for the player.

The registration is listed on the Lega Serie A website as ‘temporary’ because the player has joined the Roman club on a loan deal with an obligation to buy clause attached. In order to facilitate this, he has renewed his contract with Hellas Verona until 2023.
