Olympique Lyon midfielder Ederson has confirmed talks with Lazio.

The Brazilian has long been linked with a move to Serie A and it seems as if negotiations are progressing rapidly.

"President Claudio Lotito has been following my progress for five years. One time he came to Nice purely to talk to me," Ederson told Lalaziosiamonoi.it.

"I am very proud of his admiration and honoured that he likes my football so much. My agent is talking to Lazio, I can say that with certainty, but nothing is yet decided. We need to wait a little longer."
