By Apollo Heyes -

Lazio and Atalanta are very close to reaching an agreement over the transfer of Aleksej Miranchuk.

As reported by Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the two parties have been in constant contact in recent days regarding the Russian forward and an agreement has almost been fully reached, just in time.

Lazio are hoping to sign Miranchuk from Atalanta on a €1m loan deal with an €11 million buy option attached, practically the same deal that is taking Vedat Muriqi to Mallorca today.

The two parties hope to close out the deal before the transfer deadline this evening and updates are expected later today.

The alternative is Jovane Cabral from Sporting, but this is less likely as Miranchuk as Atalanta have already signed a replacement in Valentin Mihaila, signed from Parma.

The 26-year-old Miranchuk has scored one goal and provided two assists in 16 appearances across all competitions this season for la Dea.
