Lazio Reach Agreement With Hellas Verona for Matteo Cancellieri

Lazio have agreed a deal with Hellas Verona for talented forward Matteo Cancellieri, overtaking the interested Sassuolo.

The Neroverdi have been in talks for the 20-year-old Italian forward for the last few days, keen to pay around €6 million for his signature, but they’ve been overtaken by the Biancocelesti, who have already been in talks with Hellas Verona for a while now regarding a number of other players like Nicolo Casale and Ivan Ilic.

As reported by Gianluca Di Marzio, Lazio have agreed to pay Hellas Verona €7 million plus €1.5 million in add-ons for Matteo Cancellieri, who recently made his debut for Roberto Mancini’s Italy.

The 20-year-old could undergo his pre-transfer medicals in Rome as early as today in order to be ready for the rapidly approaching pre-season training camp in Auronzo di Cadore.

Cancellieri struggled for consistent minutes last season under Igor Tudor, only making 12 Serie A appearances for a total of 217 minutes, and he scored one goal. He’s a talented forward who can either play as a right winger or rotate with Ciro Immobile up front.

  1. Great acquisition if it follows through. If casale and illic join I would be very happy with the moves. We need youth so we can build a great team for years. Forza Lazio

  2. he seems to be an interesting signing but I want Romangonli and Casale’s deals to be confirmed quick and first.

  3. I agree with the comments above but wonder why all media reports (I know Lazio usually pay things close to their chest so not all things are to be believed) are saying Lazio won’t cough up the £500,000 Romangoli is asking for, or they can’t sign Casale until they sell Acerbi and then they are able to sign Cancellieri within a day? Sounds like he could be a great investment but with Moro and Romero already in the squad, the defence is the main area for reinforcements this summer and should be addressed first.
