Lazio are working hard to find an agreement with Olympique Marseille for Matteo Guendouzi and are edging closer to a deal.
The Biancocelesti are continuing to move in the final days of the transfer window, welcoming backup goalkeeper Luigi Sepe from Salernitana alongside their other five signings this summer.
Maurizio Sarri made it clear to Claudio Lotito that Lazio needed multiple reinforcements to bolster the midfield following the sale of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, and two have already arrived in the form of Daichi Kamada and Nicolo Rovella.
As reported by Il Messaggero (via LazioNews24), Lazio have agreed personal terms with Guendouzi, willing to pay him around €2.5 million net per season plus add-ons for five years.
In order to reach an agreement with Marseille, the Biancocelesti need to close the gap between their €16 million offer and his €18 million price tag.
The French side would also like to include an obligation to buy clause with his loan deal, whilst Lazio would prefer it to be conditional linked to Champions League qualification.
