Lazio sports chief Igli Tare says Brayan Perea is no backup.

The Colombian striker arrives from Deportivo Cali.

"I am sorry that Brayan Perea's transfer had to wait to the last second because of the non-EU places, but I can assure the supporters he is not a second choice. We need to be patient and wait before judging the squad."
