Lazio Defender Luiz Felipe’s Agent to Arrive in Rome Ahead of Decisive Week

By Apollo Heyes -

Lazio defender Luiz Felipe’s agent will arrive in Rome next week to discuss his possible contract renewal.

As reported by Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the 24-year-old Brazilian centre back’s contract expires with the club at the end of this season and the first suitors have started to emerge.

Valencia and Zenit St. Petersburg are both keen to sign Luiz Felipe on a free transfer and Inter are also interested, meaning Lazio need to work quickly if they want to tie down their talented centre back.

There is still a small distance between Luiz Felipe’s requested salary and the Biancocelesti’s offer, and this could get ironed out during the meetings with his agent next week.

The 24-year-old Luiz Felipe, who joined Lazio in the summer of 2016, has made 22 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 1944 minutes. In that time, he has picked up eight yellow cards and helped the team keep five clean sheets.
