Report: Lazio close in on deal for Botafogo defender Dória
Lazio could be closing in on a deal for Botafogo defender Dória, according to reports.
Tuttomercatoweb claims that the 24 year-old’s omission from Sunday’s clash against Santos may be an indication that he is heading to Italy.
Dória has long been linked with a switch to Europe and with Lazio looking to rejuvenate their squad with a host of young additions, he could be a perfect fit to partner Stefan de Vrij at the heart of new Head Coach Stefano Pioli’s defence.
With the transfer window closing tomorrow, securing an agreement may however prove problematic for Lazio, who have have spent much of the transfer window targeting new central defenders.
