Matias Vecino is considering making a free transfer to Lazio after their recent contract offer, but he’d need to accept a salary drop.
The Biancocelesti re-opened talks with the Uruguayan midfielder’s entourage last week in a bid to provide coach Maurizio Sarri with one more midfielder ahead of the upcoming season. The Italian coach remembers Vecino well from their year together in Empoli.
As reported by Corriere della Sera (via LazioNews24), talks between Lazio and Vecino have intensified in recent days and they’ve made a clear contract offer worth around €2m net per season to the player.
The Uruguayan was earning around €2.5m net per season with Inter, so he’d need to accept a salary drop in order to join the Roman club. Should he agree to this, things could be closed incredibly quickly. Otherwise, Lazio will look elsewhere for their final outfield reinforcement of the summer transfer window.
Vecino made 126 appearances across all competitions for Inter, scoring 13 goals and providing seven assists.
