Roma Thinking of Making Surprise Move for Expiring Lazio Defender Luiz Felipe

By Apollo Heyes -

Roma are seriously considering making a move for expiring Lazio defender Luiz Felipe.

As reported by Italian media outlet Calciomercato.com last night, the 24-year-old Brazilian defender’s contract is set to expire with the Biancocelesti at the end of this season and a contract renewal has not been renewed yet, with the club offering less than his requests.

Roma would be willing to offer Luiz Felipe his requested €2.5 million net per season contract in the summer, after his contract expires with intercity rivals Lazio. Last summer Pedro crossed the River Tiber, the first time a direct move between the clubs occurred since 1981, and now it could happen again.
