Lazio have achieved a breakthrough in their talks with Granada for Luis Maximiano and a deal could be fully finalised soon.
The Biancocelesti have been in constant contact with both the Spanish club and the 23-year-old Portuguese shot stopper’s entourage over the last 24 hours, desperate to pick up a reliable new goalkeeper ahead of the pre-season training camp later this week.
As reported by La Lazio Siamo Noi, Granada are open to sending Luis Maximiano to Lazio on a loan deal with a buy option attached, making a deal very accessible. The two parties are now in talks to finalise everything within the next 24-48 hours.
The Portuguese shot stopper has already agreed personal terms with the Roman club, accepting a salary worth just under €1.5 million net per season.
Lazio also made another attempt for Atalanta prospect Marco Carnesecchi, but things collapsed because the Bergamo side are still asking for €20 million including add-ons.
Journalist Alfredo Pedulla suggests that Lazio are now focusing on signing Maximiano to be the first choice option, leaving Empoli’s Guglielmo Vicario sidelined. Spezia shot stopper Ivan Provedel is still the main choice to be the backup option.
