Lazio Working Hard to Agree Contract Renewal With Luiz Felipe, Both Sides Optimistic

Lazio are still hard at work trying to reach a contract renewal agreement with defender Luiz Felipe.

As reported by Italian radio broadcaster Radiosei (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the 24-year-old Brazilian defender’s current deal is set to expire next year in 2022 and Biancocelesti president Claudio Lotito is keen to tie him down to a new deal.

Luiz Felipe is also interested in continuing his time with Lazio and so the two parties are in talks. The defender currently earns €600,000 net per year and he would like that raised to €2.5 million net per year.

Lotito‘s offer was decidedly lower than that but the two parties are gradually moving towards a middle ground.

Lazio are working hard to iron out a deal soon, wanting pen on paper before the January Transfer Window opens.

The 24-year-old Luiz Felipe, who joined Lazio in 2016, has made 14 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 1230 minutes.
