Lazio have officially signed Sporting Lisbon winger Jovane Cabral.
The formula of the deal for the 23-year-old Cabral is a €1 million loan with an option to buy set at €8 million, while the player’s salary is set at €1.5 million per year. Although Lazio were linked to various attackers throughout the Winter Transfer Window, they dialled in on the Cape Verde international today and worked diligently to get the deal over the line before the deadline.
Cabral will reinforce Maurizio Sarri’s current attack of Felipe Anderson, Pedro, Mattia Zaccagni, Raul Moro, and Ciro Immobile. Although primarily deployed as a left-winger, he also has experience playing as a right-winger and striker.
