AC Milan captain Alessio Romagnoli’s contract renewal talks have stalled and Lazio are closely following the situation.

As reported by Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the 26-year-old Italian defender’s current contract expires with the Milanese club next year in 2022 and the two parties have been in contract renewal talks for some time now.

Romagnoli wants to earn more than the €3.5 million net per season being offered by AC Milan, but this has caused talks to stall for the time being.

Lazio sporting director Igli Tare is following the situation closely, planning his next moves should the talks fail to lead to progress.

The 26-year-old Romagnoli is a well-known Lazio fan and his arrival in Rome would likely be a strong cause for celebration for the Biancocelesti faithful, especially considering that Danilo Cataldi is currently the only Roman in the first team.

The Italian defender has made five Serie A appearances so far this season for the Rossoneri, including in the 2-0 win over the Biancocelesti.
